    Default One of those days

    When everything comes together and goes rite. Back in the oxbows again, the river above L&D#2 was at pool stage after all the rain in the area. Got an early wake up call from Mr Thunder at 3 am to beat the alarm by a half hour, coffee made and quick check on the radar and the rain missed me. I got to the launch about 1/2 hr before safe light to see if the fish would bite cranks in the dark so I could extend my time on the water before it got to hot. Rigged 8 poles under the moonlight and started trolling from the dock and had 2 splashing on the surface before sun up and continued steady till around 10. I had 22 keepers and probably caught about 35 total even hooked a sea monster. He stripped over 800 of 30# braid off the real before I could get the other baits in to go chase him. I did get to put an eye ball on him when he made a spectacular jump like a tarpon, but it was a very large paddle fish. They put up a pretty good fight on my 12 trolling rod and he finally got off. Not many pictures but I was busy all morning. Name:  IMG_0332.jpg

    Sounds like a great time. With the bonus of the making for a good fish fry
    :I would like to thank the builders of docks for giving me a place to fish and lose tackle

    The Red gives up another fine mess. Nice.
    Only need three more years before I can think like a fish.

    Found it funny today the fish were holding 6-8' instead of 10-12'. The water temp was 86*

    Same here. I've been running my baits at about 8' deep.
