It was the last 70 degree day for the week, so right after work I headed for the river to float one of my favorite short runs on the French. I knew the fish would be active with the water temps approaching 60F. I managed one nice smallie and one rock bass that looked like it had an old musky bite wound. I did miss 4 other nice fish that threw the bait or I couldn't get stuck on the hook set. The coolest being on a new crawfish Rumba wake bait I was testing out right at the boat, the fish took two good swipes at it, but missed the hooks. That's fishing for ya... At least I know where they are for the next round...
