A Great Day on the Water

 Catching bait in the morning

 Michael wondering if everyone showed up for work today

 David with a catfish
Boating a Striper

Sunny and beautiful, Water Temperatures upper 50's
Took out Jerry Logan, his two sons Michael and Ron and his grandson David for a pretty day on the water. Jerry's father started Logan Electric in Fredricksburg back in the 50's. Jerry ran the business and has relinquished the reins to Michael. Jerry is a good photographer and sent me a few of the photos he took on the trip. David and his dad Paul are here for a visit and returning to Turkey soon. If you click on the first picture and check my Simrad out you can see all the Stripers that kept chasing the bait away as we were trying to catch bait this morning. It was wonderful to spend the day with such a great family.

I throw a 10 foot 1 1/2 pound 3/4 inch net for Shad. The weight and larger mesh size allow the net to sink faster.
