Got a chance to get away to fish for a couple hours last night. Nova finally let me out of work. The fish were not too fired up but we did put about 12 in the bucket let a few go. Took out Puzzler for a metro gill bite. He was happy with the action once they picked up. We had about 15 holes punched and just had to keep moving. Bite started around 4:45 and ended close to 6:30. Still mark a fish but would not bite.
All gills were over 9 inch mark with one pig 10 1/4 . Two crappies also mixed in around 11 1/4.
Was my first 10 inch gill off this lake in about 8 years. I hope to get Uncle Smash out next week sometime. This weather was unreal in Feb. No jacket no gloves.
