What a great morning you could not have asked for a better weather. I got out early and did a little trolling for stripes, while going for bait. i was able to boat a total of 6 little one in the 2-4lb range. After i got bait i decided to try some places i use to fish when i first started to fish the lake. The bite was on I had all day action. the longest time between bites was maybe 15min. I boated cats from 9lbs down to dinks. I had one hits so hard it snapped my line at the hook. I also had one i could not get to the boat I had it under the boat for 15 min and could not get up far enough to net. The line had enough and broke where it was rubbing at the mouth, the line looked like it was ran through a sander. I'm thinking about using coated steel leaders next time.oooh: The lake was pretty much open with only a few boats out.
