I had a pretty slow day, I hooked 3 fish over the course of the day, landed a brown around 20 inches, and then a chrome steelie around 26 inches. I lost another fish later in the day and decided to call it quits around 2 pm. I got the brown on a olive x legs pattern and then hooked both steelies on yarn. Water is quite muddy and is even worse today according to the flow charts. I'll be back later this week.

Hi guys,

I know some of you had asked for some pics if we had any luck, and I thought this would be a good thread to post them. My friend Jay (aka-EidesRX) and I met up with some friends for a nice traditional opener.

We caught a few fish in the morning and then retired to a small warming fire to cook some marinated venison. It was an excellent time. We didn't fish too hard, but managed a few fish, and more importantly got to see some good friends.

Awesome! Thanks for posting pics!

This spring isn't in the cards, but will have to make something work in the fall.

What were the crowds like up there?

It was really pretty crowded on Saturday. Then the river came up and turned off color on Sunday and the crowds were a little lighter, but the fishing wasn't as good for those who stayed.

      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!
