On the other hand, none of us got anything worth keeping - except memories. It was a gorgeous day at Mantua, glass calm until 11:27 when all of us suddenly starting digging around in our craft for anchors. Blowy. Suddenly.
Good guys and good times. Who needs keepers?

Good to meet you guys. That was a nice glassy start, then we actually anchored up and the let the wind work us across the lake. Plenty of surface activity (and they weren't CARP!) and a few blips on sonar here and there, but not much love on the hook.
I did connect with one bluegill (a keeper, just hadn't planned on a solo performance on string!) A dinky trout and dinkier bass that didn't even bother to take a shot. Had a few more swipes and tugs.
I was pleased that with fresh mixed gas - the gas motor fired up well, and ran us back to launch quite nicely. Ok - maybe jdawg would have liked the trolling motor speed! More than a few chops across the bow! Didn't take the wakeboarders to make the waves THIS day!
