Some days the bite is early, some days it is at noon, Thursday afternoon there was not a bite at all. The rain ran us off of the water today. It is fishing, some days will be better than others. All of these fish were caught on topwater, and that big red come out of a school of overslots smashing plugs. It went 32" and was tagged. I also hate having to explain to kids why there are fish floating with "cuts" on them. It is sickening.
