TONS OF PRESSURE, I fished it tonight with a friend and there were boats everywhere, had two fish on trolling but for some reason they both came unbottoned a few seconds into the fight. never had that happen before. any way lots of folks on the water and not a lot of fish showing their faces.

Caught a 38" on Friday, and a 50.25" on Saturday. I agree - - - - lots of boats!

hey Guys,

I went out on Friday evening and in the morning on Saturday and Sunday. Saw a few fish including one that would

go 45 to 48 inches on spinnerbait. I couldn't believe all the boats out there.

P.S. To Sodfarmer congrats on the 50 incher. If you don't

mind me asking were you casting or trolling this weekend.

Made it out all day sat. It was a slow day no ski's but managed some nice pike. Sod did you happen to get any pics of that 50?

Both fish were caught trolling. The only camera on board was my buddys cell phone. He took four pictures and promised me that he would protect the phone with his life until he got me the pictures on disc.

Something that I think might be interesting is the depth that these fish were caught. Temperatures were HOT. The 38 incher was caught in about 12 ft of water along a shaded shore. The 50.25 incher was caught in about 24 ft. of water trolling deep (about 16 - 18 ft). I think that the hight temps played a factor in where I found these fish.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
