    17 total fish sounds like a descent day on the water to me. Thanks for the report

    Howdy Wolf ,it wasn't to bad but man it took most of the day to find them or they just happen to start biting...if it wasn't for the last couple of spot's we stopped and fished we would of only had 6 or 7 ...
