I was only able to make it out Sat. on a guided trip and we landed our first fish in three minutes fifthteen seconds. While I was taken that one off the hook the other circle rod bent with an ever better cat that was a little over 12lbs. Most of the day we fished the out side edges of snags in 10 to 15 feet of water. Bait of choice is still freash cut sucker but I'm sure gold eye will start to work even better in the coming weeks.
