    I hit Amber Sat about 3:30 fished untill dark took my 14yr old daughter on her first pontoon boat with a motor. It was interesting to say the least
    we had learning curve getting her and the boat going in the right direction I let her do a whole lot of dougnuts before she would listen **sorry to
    anyone who heard us.** She got it under control and we were on our way to a good evening of fishing I got 4 nice fish on dry flies and 5 trolling
    sinking line. The daughter caught 4 and had a bunch more on but just doesn't understand to keep the rod tip up. First fish of the day right off the boat
    launch was a big fat cut. what a fish. Can't wait for next trip.

    Great looking fish! Sounds like a fun afternoon, even with the doughnuts.

    Sounds like a great day. Did it get kinda breezy out there for you. That lake seems to have the wind blowing 9 out of 10 trips out there.

    By the way, you're boat isn't gas powered is it? Gasoline engines aren't allowed out there I don't think.

    Nice fish. Seems like we go hither and yonder for "better" fishing spots, only to catch the big one by the launch. I always seem to catch my biggest fish of the day by the lauches on the Clark Fork.

    the water was smooth all afternoon last time I was out it was super windy. Yes the motor was electric, I'm sure everyone on the lake would take care of someone with a gas motor
