I had another great day earlier this week with “fish magnets” Roy and Amanda. It was a nice fall morning with temps down to about 47 and a pretty good breeze outta the ESE at 10-15 knots. The water was crystal clear, so conditions set up pretty good. On our first stop Amanda boats 4 NICE trout in about 4 casts. We figured it was on! And then things went kinda sideways with a severe case of lockjaw developing. From there it was trolling motor, anchor, plastics, live shrimp and we even considered dynamite. With a trout there, and a red here, we started adding a few up. We weeded thru quite a few dinks as well. Heading back to the ramp we were wondering if we’d have enough fish to stink the grease. It was reminding me of a Kenny Rogers song where “you never count your money (fish) when you’re sitting at the table (boat)”. Sure enough, after the land of a thousand casts, Roy and Amanda (fish magnets) had grinded out a nice mess…again! Thanks guys, it’s always a blast to fish with you!!
