Had a sneaking suspicion that fishing would be more fun than work today.
Left the barn and made a left ...
Stopped on a few paddys for zero. Went inside for plan B. Love plan B.
Toad yellows on the bottom. Big hooks big baits tight drags. Stupid fishing.
Back to the barn by 1300.

WTG Dave! Awesome. Did you have to get on the hook or were you able to get them drifting that stuff?

I think on the hook that day would have been perfect. There were a lot of fish and they would have come up the chum line.... I am sure. But I only have 100' chain and 250' rode ... not enough for the depth they were in. Drifting was working just fine.

    The sport boats anchor down there ... but to your point you need about 600' feet of rode to even consider it! Thanks for the heads up, I sold JC last month. New toy is all ready :)
