I had six fellows that wanted to go cattin' and this afternoon was the only time they could get together. Well, if you stepped outside today, you know that the wind was blowing. I picked them up at 1:15 PM and it was fairly calm (8 MPH), but by the time I got to our fishing area it was blowing 15 to 20 MPH out of the SW, with gust of 30. So, I turned the boat into the wind and ran my MinnKota at position 6 and off we went. Bait of choice was white perch heads and side filets. I had a party of six and everybody caught a blue, the largest was 11 pounds caught by fellow that had never caught anything larger than a bluegill. Everybody was happy and so was I.
