The River has finally got down to good fishing levels and the air temperature also.

The water temp. is 75.
Air temp. is in the low 80's fer a change.
River is still kinda muddy.
The wind was blowing.  Makin boat handlin difficult to say the least, hell it blowed my fat ass upstream a time or two...

We caught @ 30 or so Redbreast, a couple Bluegill, one LM Bass and one Jack (Yakfisher got the Big fish of the day with that one).

Here's some pictures.












Ain't Floatin New Stretches Of River Grand!!!

     Great photos and report, Don. That looks to be Sunfish and Bass heaven to me! Is that "Low Country Boil" I smell?   ;D

Gofisher, If you are going to fish out it, a sit on top is the only way to go. They are so much easier to get in and out of. And they are a lot easier to rig for fishing.

I appreciate the input on the sit on top. I've been going with a buddy using 9 &1/2' sit ins because they are so light to get to the water. I've already tipped over once, and filled it with water a second time. :o I've also caught a couple fish out of them and have been able to get to water I normally would not have. I'm just not sure I could carry a heavier one to some of the places we launch at. I'm leaning very hard to the SOT.

Yeah Gofisher, just remember one tote through Rockhouse or Stonewall bridge will make your mind up real fast. :P
