went out last sunday in the 30 mph wind and struggled. was very limited by where we could go so ended fishing out of the wind below the rollers and managed 8 fish (from 9 am to about 2 pm. ) not good. but cant be picky. i fish when i can, not when it is right. last night i went out on our new pontoon by myself (that is parked at the marina in a slip, excellent!@) was out for one hour and caught 12 cats for probably 25 or so pounds . was very fun as fast as i could do it. I would have loved to troll some bigger bait through that area but kind of limited from a pontoon boat though. I am the only pontoon boat on this part of the river with rod holders out the back and brand new bench seats up front. I will try to post pics when i get the chance. to start the evening, i baited up 2 poles before casting out. before i threw the 2nd one out, the first one had a fish on , before i could reel in the first fish, the second pole had a fish on . A 2 and a 4lber to start the day. That is why we fish.
