  1. :rolleyes: WHILE FISHING MOSQUITO AND MILTON THIS FALL I HAD TO DEAL WITH FISHERMAN OF A DIFFERENT SORT! MALLARDS BY THE DOZENS! SOME EVEN TYING TO ELBO ME OUT! WHILE THIS WAS A CHALLENGE NOT TO HARM MY FEATHERED FRIENDS, THE FISH DIDNT SEEM TO MIND. NEVER THE LESS, ALL THREE OF US WENT HOME HAPPY FULL OF FISH! :D ALSO THERE IS A TIME ON EVERY LAKE WHEN THE GULLS START HITTING THE SURFACE BEHIND THE WAKE OF EVERY BOAT. TO ME THIS IS THE TIME TO TROLL THE SURFACE OVER OPEN WATER FOR THOSE BIG FISH! EACH LAKE HAS A DIFFERENT TIME AT WITCH THIS HAPPENS. BERLIN IT STARTED A MONTH AGO. WEST BRANCH THE BAIT FISH ARE SUSPENDED 5-6 FT BELOW THE SURFACE MAKING THE GULLS DIVE AND NOT LETTING THE FISH GET UNDER THEM!? IF BIRDS COULD ONLY TALK !
     
  2. When I see the gulls, I usually look next to find the white bass hitting the surface, and then I start casting my double white split tails and try to make some hay.......TightLines!
