Flat out here. We r struck at 14. Doing pretty good considering we let a 5 year old do most of the work. When she changed over to the ne it quit for us.

We pulled are 15 in about 3 hrs with 4 in the 25" range. Sorry no pics, wife took the camera out of my bag. We stayed west of the big pack by #1 in 24 FOW. Couldnt help but think of Soup. If you didnt catch a fish within a few minutes you were without bait or dragging a small fish. Action was pretty much nonstop.

Biting flys were relentless by us.
Yeah, those little bas****s were eating the crap out of your ankles. Don't forget bug spray. There was a big pack out there for sure. We stayed west also, picked up 15 with only a couple bigger ones all on spoons.

What spray works on those ankle biters?
We tried deep woods off yesterday and did not work. They were bad.

Holy Crap~! :dizzy:Yeah they were bad. Those little bastards are what made up my mind it was time to head in. Had teni-shoes and socks and they were spotted with blood from those darn things when I got home.

Deet didn't help a bit. Hate using that stuff when pulling meats - invariably gets on your fingers.

Wore my hat out swinging at them!:yikes: One of those built-in light hats - and now it don't work no more!:eek:ne_eye:

Put some dryer sheets around on the floor of your boat. I use a snap weight to keep them from blowing out. They help.
