I got started at about 830. didnt like the conditions at first. saw a big one swim by (#89)... before 9. she just lolly gagged by. and as she did my lure came over her face. but she wasnt interested at all. I fished around for awhile. then conditions got a little better so I went over by the fish again.. but north. and had 5 small follows. then I spot another little one coming in but it turned away. and went to the bottom. so I started to figure 0. and it came up and grabbed the bucktail. .. 7 minutes later I had about a 30 incher follow me in. and I caught this one in the first turn of the 0.. first 2 ever 7 minutes apart. not very big. but still kinda exciting.. after the 2nd fish. I figured they were turning on and I should try for #89... I was drifting toward the spot . but wasnt sure if she was just swimming through that location or what so I just let the drift play out. I made a long with the Giant killer. just a few cranks and wham.. saw a boil. battle on. got the fish to the boat did some runs as I was tryin to net it. at one point I had it in the net but it got out. and took me on another run. i thought for sure the fish would get off but she was hooked good. finally scooped it up. and what a releif.. checked the Gps and I went right through the spot. I wasnt sure if she would be there since she was just swimming by the first time. but she was. My biggest of the year so far. She was fat ..but still not a 50.. after that I had a couple more little ones hit. one big one hit and lost a little one at the boat. Then I had to leave to take care of some stuff. caught a Lm and a sm too. pretty good day. Fish were in about 8-9 feet. caught all 3 on a firetiger Giant killer..

I can fish the weekends & an occasional weekday if I take a vacation day or get sick.
I now have 2 Friday's a month off due to Aunt Jenny making us take furlough days because she doesn't have a clue on how to balance the state budget.

That fish doesn't want anything you have, she wants that lure you left in the Taquanonom river in the U.P.

Just replied to your PM 'Bait. I asked you how you did, but that's before I read this. Duh.

Anyway, our fish were about 9:30, then my big girl was about noon. One of these days we need to meet up and shake hands. Never actually met you yet.

Nice fish SpinnerBait! You do a great job of fighting, landing and photographing those fish by yourself. I know it's not easy. Awesome job!
