I was hosted by Goosehunter today at his club.
We were launched by 10:30. It was a slow start with only a "Shore Patrol" Green Fish to show for the first hour or so.

Image
After quite a few moves, we found some large, strong Rockies, The largest at 10+ inches.
Image
Image

Now these fish eat every bit as good as a Bluegill so they got the ride to Chicago.

We moved down the main lake without much success. So................. off we go to a favorite producing hole.
On the way there Ang was trailing a Beetlespin & Minnow.
A big hit and..........................
Yep, It was one a Dem Hoochie girls.
Image

The day just got better from there. Down at da hole they was hittin' like there was no tomorrow.
I got this 9 inch Bruiser that was missing his whole top lip. It looked like it had been that way a long time.

Image
Ang countered with this beauty.
Image

Then in comes a Double of Hoochies that were hoppin' Floppin' mad.

Image
They did calm down enough to be unhooked and ceremoniously live welled.

Image

Rest assured, this fishery can send a few "Nice Girls" to Chicago with no sweat.

One lonely Crappie volunteered to join the party. He went back for another day
Image

My host informed me at the end of the day that he had plenty of fish at home and that I would have the honor of putting this bunch under the knife. :bigyuck
Image

One 9" missing a lip, 2- 9 1/2" and a host of 8+ Gills
Seven nice Rockies, the largest being 10+ all of them Chunky.

Slip Bobbers, jigs and tails Minnows and Wax worms in all presentations took fish today.

Thanks again Ang. for sharing a great day to be fishing with me.

Enjoyable day indeed. I just finished cleaning. It turns out that a lot of the ones I thought were Hoochies
turned out to be BIG BOYZ.
The one with no top Lip and one of the 9 1/2 inchers were a few of them.

A few of the Mamas had some small spawn sacks but not bulging out.
I think that spells.................................. We ain't begun to fight.....yet. :allah

Surprisingly, the biggest Rockie caught was also a male.
