Went north of the Blue Water Bridge yesterday to handline, 10 minutes into the drive realized we forgot the net . Contemplated stopping at Meijers and grabbing 1 for the next 15 minutes as we were running down 26 mile towards I-94 and figured we never catch anything really big and I have 4 at home, so decided to roll the dice.
Went under the bridge and the lake was about as flat as it gets, dropped lines just as it got dark. It took about 2 minutes to get #1 a nice 18" eater, couple minutes later hooked #2 could tell it was bigger then #1 as the line was starting to cut into my fingers. Got it up by the boat and the kid said it was a big one. Got it right up next to the motor then tried to pull it over the back of the boat (lowest point of boat). Think I misjudged the size, as I got most of the fish outta the water, but just its head over the back of boat and the line started slicing my finger, slide it back in then pulled again with a little more. Couldn't believe how big it was after it was in the boat .
Figured we were gonna have a great night but it slowed right down with the kid losing 1 in the next hour and a half. Went to the beach and trolled 20' of water, got 1 in the first 2 minutes and once again figured we found them, then nothing for an hour.
Went back down by bridge and got 1 on the next 2 passes and then called it a night about 1 AM. Fish were 29, 22 20 19 and 17". Lure pictured caught 3 of the fish including the big one.
O yeah nice fish

If it obscures the navigation lights, then it's not in compliance. It's OK to use a spotlight to check for something in the water, another boat, or other temporary use, but you can't pilot the boat and leave it on.
edit - I see I didn't answer your question.... if a boat is coming toward you with their 'high beams' on, get very far away very fast. That would be a great indication he (or she) doesn't know what they are doing and they don't know which way they would/should turn either... give them LOTS of room!
Tks for the posted info ... That explain exactly my question..

Once you find the fish, let them tell you what they want and how fast. Start slow like .8mph and work up from there. Going to be touch with a bigger boat and the wind will push you around. Take a buddy and use 6 rods and use 6 different color harnesses. Once you have the first fish switch another rod to that color. If another comes on same color switch another. Sometimes they won't touch anything but 1 color (like orange) all day but the day after they only want another (like copper). The light is good for me in July/August.
