So a friend and his dad took me and my two oldest out on a lake today. The 5 of us hopped into a 16ft boat powered by a minkota electric motor and off we were. We trolled with streamers and knocked them out! The kids had a blast! We were on the water by 7 am and by 9 we had tons of strikes and misses and 14 fish to net! At the end I threw for some Bass and managed to catch one. Everyone else came up empty handed on the Bass front. The weather looked like it was going to get real ugly, so we called it good and good it was. Dark colored wooly buggers were the ticket and my fly I'll post pics of later did real well for my son. It's a mini zonker variant, we ended up naming it "The Producer". . We saw top water action, Salamanders, Ospreys picking up fish and eagles flying low for fish as well. Lot's of stuff going on. It was perfect, especially seeing the kids catching like they did! The drive for me to get a boat is even stronger now...just need to hustle up some $$$. Maybe next season.
