Went out to Ladue to test out a friends 12ft alum. starcraft mid 60's boat he just got ... didn't go to far from the boat house just in case it leaked... we rowed in circles and drifted for about 8 hours....no fish finder and no electric motor... he's saving up the money.... it was a good time... it was like being a kid again!

I got this nice channel... 7ft medium/light action rod... 10lb line... measured at about 25 inches (tape measure) about 8lbs (rapala spring scale)... on cut bait (white perch).

other than white perch this was it...but no leaks on any of the rivets... and we had to ground a tail light that was out on the trailer ... this was fun at 3am! :)

sorry... photo is a cell phone pic :eek:

I was at Ludue today as well. Here is a Cat that my brother in law caught on a Rapp. We went ashore to take a pic. It weighed in at 7.9 pounds. It put up a nice fight that's for sure! A nice guy in another boat let us borrow his net since we didn't have one. I have to say, you meet more nice people fishing then anywhere else. Everyone (Well Most People) are pretty considerate and polite!
