Now wsj is going to take his boss for a on the water meeting for work tomorrow and wanted to ensure he had a good time with some fish. In addition I did just install the helix 7 chirp-DI on the front and really wanted to see it action.....so a pre-meeting trip was in order.

After Church and doggie duties taken care of, the boat floated once again. Played with the new sonar quite a bit, even ran into shore a time or two not paying attention. Quite impressive that unit is, but what concerned me was it was not marking any fish, Hummmm could the thing be defective?

No, just the fish had chosen to spend their day in other locations rather than their normal spots. Once figured out the baits changed to their preference a few did come to hand. And on 2# test the rough fish were quite fun to play tug-o-war with. Hands washed thoroughly after their release so as to not ward off any trophy fish that may have a purple breast plate as a calling card.

The gills seemed to prefer a rocker head jig this day, and like the orange better than yellow for a change of pace as well. Tipped with 1/2 of a trout worm for that down home, time to eat scent. Kinda like cookies freshly baked at Grandma's house.

Hope I can find some for the boss in the morning....... :winker

Great tip about washing your hands after catching those predators. What do you use to rid your hands of the predator funk? I wish you luck with your boss!

I wish we had a unit that would not just paint the picture of what is below but tell us what that stuff all is. Like, what is that cloud of something that is hovering in the mid depths?
What is that?
Insect hatch?
Just hatched fish?
Gas bubbles?
Mayflies?
I didn't see any mayflies on the pits that we fished this weekend.
You Willie?

Mr. Luc,

What you are referring to I believe is "what is elusive yet obtainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope"

And yes it's an enjoyable search for sure.

Well the boss along for the trip was sure an enjoyable one. Any yes he did catch fish, enough for a good meal anyways. Mostly gills with a few crappie and red ears mixed in. A very enjoyable day.

What was surprising was some gills and red ears mixed on the nesting site. Thought they would have been done by now.

Just an FYI, I was not laying on my side taking these pictures. And yes they were rotated on the computer.
