3 hour tour

Hit Marysville late and had to be back early for my sons girlfriends 25th bday dinner. Brought jigging rods and a couple BB rods. I did one long drift dragging meat for about an hour and didn’t get a bump. So I shot to my summertime shallow jigging spot and popped a super golden **** Head. Next drift got a 19” eye, next drift an 18”. Nothing next couple drifts but gobies. Freighters were insane today. Coming through 3 at a time plus a cruise ship. Woulda been dead calm without all that. So I had about an hour left to spare so I went to my close Canadian spot and got a 17” right off the rip. Then nothing for a couple drifts. Marked a bunch of fish but they weren’t interested. Crazy minnows still everywhere. Ended up getting a really fat 18.5” smallie that danced around like a salmon, was pretty cool. Thought for sure I would have done better but is what it is. Pimp daddy tipped with crawler piece did all the damage lmao. Water was 69.3 degrees. Still better then birthday shopping with old lady lol.

Not sure what else to call it Brian lol. If that’s just someone’s weekender F that guy with his crazy rich ass lol.
Was that a cruise ship, or your new super yacht? That’s not the cruise ship that I saw the summer on the river, I think it was called the Octavius

Just looked that ship up. Looks like 5 of them in the fleet and up to $23,000 on that exact one in the pic. But not in the lakes like $9,500 for a fresh water tour. Next June she’s $23,000 start saving lol.
Rotator cuff is clicking Norm lol. Outta shape lol.
Some nice looking walleye for warm water, had to be nice to get back out there again, its been awhile. Gotta keep that jigging arm limbered up.

Fish are definitely there. But I think it’s the unbelievable amount of minnows everywhere that’s killing the bite. Should have some fatass fall fish tho once they start biting good again. Both sides US and Canada was just a constant flow of minnows.
Makes me really wishin' I was fishin'.
Maybe soon!
The water temps should be plummeting next week.
Oh for sure have had livewell a full of puked up minnows. But something about this year just seems like 10x more than I’ve ever seen in the last 20+ years. Which I’m happy they have the food to fatten up.
