    Spent to first half of the day fishing with my new fishing partner Justin. We caught 60 bluegill on crickets and had a blast. We fished 2 spots this evening using our bluegills for bait. First area was up in a shallow cove and caught a 8lb right off the bat. A few minutes later 2 guy's came up on us with ski boats and thought it was funny to be doing donuts where we were fishing,right on top of our lines. I was nice(kinda) and asked them to back off and all that did was make them act more like jerks. Worst part is these guy's were in their mid 40's and should have more respect for others. I had my cell so I called the DW and they were there in 5 minutes and caught the guy's in the act. We moved to another spot ( shallow water) and ended up with 6 blues totaling 55lbs. We only fished for a total of 2 1/2 hours. Found it kinda strange because the most common thing they had in their stomachs was tree bark,never seen that before. They also had bluegill's, mussles, and a 5" mister twister tail. Fishing is getting good guy's get out there and get your lines in the water.!!
