Make Them Believers
Came out the Harbor saw about 25 boats surrounding Linda May in about 37 foot of water! Turned the vhf radio on and heard a lot of guys asking Linda Mae if they were on fish, I quickly determined that if those boats are that close to one another asking if anyone is having any luck then they aren't doing well! I didn't bother driving through the pack and shot out to about 44 foot of water and marked some very nice fish! Dropped anchor, it took about 30 minutes before the first bite and I was thinking about moving! In my head I thought to myself I'm going to give it 5 more minutes then tell the guys to prepare for a move! Wham Rod starts going off, nice 12 inch perch comes up and then my other two guests gets hookups within 30 seconds! I look at the sonar and see fish under the boat stacked 4-7 foot high at times! We ran through 12 dozen minnows, 3 limits of Jumbos, I caught a lot of big Whitebass as a bonus! Fishing was soo fun today, I learned that with my settings the Whitebass showed up a different color on the Lowrance which was cool being able to predict which type of fish were going to bite at times! The perch gave off dark red to orange readings and the Whitebass had a green yellow look on the screen! One of my guest was a guy I met at Gordon park a few weeks ago, he asked if I ever had an open seat to call him! He had a great stringer! I took my Protege Stan the Mailman back with us! I was ready to drop a jigging spoon down and fill the boat with those Whitebass, I literally was using minnows that the perch were coughing up because there was unlimited Whitebass under the boat! But we decided to call it one hell of a day and head in! I radiod for everyone to head to my location since soo many were struggling in shallow! One person acknowledged my transmission and hopefully headed out! Water was lovely with a slight chop at times which helped the bite!
