Kenny,
Been a Packer Fan since age four. Hey the Bears can get better after Favre retires! Anyway this fish is from Banner East Access. There are some real wall hangers in there. The problem is that there is a ton of 7" fish along with them. If you go, check out the back slough along the levee. You have to be pretty stealthy. I usually fish a jig under a bobber 8-14" and vertical jig in the heavy brush. Caught about 30 or so last Saturday but only 5 keepers.
They are not yet spawning but this warm weather will soon get them going.
P.S.
There are a lot of Bass tournaments at Banner so watch the papers and try to go when there not having a tournament. (only 1 single ramp)

Good Luck and Good Fishin'

Nice fish, and nice pic. I see you got the hang of the board. Packer fan, that's OK too, I'm kinda a Packer Fan too, especially since the Bears have done so well lately. Yes, a fair weather fan.

:Rofl ... now this one may well be the oldest revived thread so far (9yrs & change) :Doh:

It's so old, the original posting member is listed as a "guest" :yikes (which means he hasn't posted anything in several years & his "membership" got axed with all the updates/upgrades)

Sorry, Rees ... couldn't help myself :peacesmile
