    Well this is the funny part this is the first time I went with just my trolling setups left my flypole and my spinning stuff at home. If I WOULD of brought the other stuff I would of caught a bunch but as per normal I normally kill em trolling lol but not this time and not rigged for anything else lol. Thats ok had a good time anyways.

    Are the grasshoppers out yet Mutt? thats when you have to fish the surface for sure, they go crazy over those hoppers.

    We used to fish the spillway below Mcswain I believe and hoppers or crickets were definetly the best baits .
