A River Outing


Recommended Posts

Finally got to spend a morning on the water with the son, so we ran out to the river to drag harnesses. I figured the waters would still be a little murky and opted for darker blades. Robert opted for bright and white. He guessed wrong. My half of the morning was great. In 4 hours I would land walleye, pike, smallies and sheephead. The highlight of the morning was another PB. Got myself a 30" pickerel. Not my heaviest, but certainly my longest. She will be coming soon to a place of honor on the wall.

I have not made up my mind yet. Depends on the day's target.
