Robert Williams

Cloudy and Cold, Water Temperature 43* to 45* and Clear.
I picked Robert up at 7, caught bait and went fishing. We set up over 25 foot flats with numerous points and humps nearby pulling 12 planner boards and a bobber. Since I had only one angler in the boat today I did not want to fish areas where the action would be out of control, I only put out 13 lines working areas that held fish but not schools of fish. We hit a few different spots taking plenty of hits but only hooking up with about a third of the strikes. After about 35 hits I decided the fish were just not wanting to eat so I told Robert to help me get the baits in, we were going to do something completely different. We made a big move, started putting baits out and hooked up after only getting 3 baits out. The move paid off, these fish wanted to eat. We caught 4 or 5 more and called it a day. Robert kept a few fish to take back home and we released the other fish to fight again.
