    Well i had to try my pontoon at night and see what it still needed. Lights will be one thing i will add. We did manage a few nice fish even though the bite was slow. They seem to be up closer to the bank than i normaly fish, i guess sometimes we need to get out of our comfort zone. Did see a guy that said he didn't catch anything and was using shad and bream, we eneded up releasing the 10-12 we caught. 2 largest was about 15lbs.

    If i'm out in the lake, i'm a drifting:big_smile: I went out to pre fish the pontoon at night to see what it needed. The boys didn't give me a chance to catch many fish (they were all over the rods). I did find out i need (Bill in SC) to put some type of lights on the boat so i can see the rods. Man, i had forgoten how confy a pontoon can be

    Good report and catch! Pontoons are indeed, VERY comfy! I want one bad to drift the Santee with, but I NEED another Harley first! You can pick up an LED light strip pretty cheap on eBay. They'll light up the world!

    Thanks for the rteport and way to go on what sounded like a great night of fishing. BTW the LED's will light up the world and are cheaper on E-Bay. I put them on my John for night fishing near Cedar Creek and down stream @ the Singleton Creek area. I wish you great fishing.:big_smile:

    Thanks again guys. Even though i have had a couple good trips at Wateree in the past couple weeks, fishn will always be fishn. Last night me and a long time fishn partner went down to try our luck. We usually do pretty good when we team up but after fishn most of our life we have learned to even enjoy the times that are not so good.:big_smile: So with that being said, i will give the +'s of the trip last night. The weather was great, lake was beautiful with only a few boats, we boated some of the largest bullheads we have ever caught:smile2: We did come home somewhat earlier than usual to get a good nights sleep and save some for the next trip.
    No pic's this trip:wink:
