There's a reason I started this post off a bit unorthodox. Earlier this week

Well the combination sure paid off! About a hour or so in I pull up my first bass of the year and she was a pig!

Picked up two more small keepers 15 and 18in (18 on fly also) and caught more than 50 smalls also. All the small fish were from 11-13.5 inches. In all a good day on the water with Dad.

Wanting to get to a spot about 1 ½ to 2 miles away, I suggest to Clint to sit tight at the bridge till the fog lifts.
