This trip is marked on our calendars every year and another open water season was kicked off in style.



We had to work for these fish, covering a ton of water over the last 3 days while picking up a fish or two off spots. A vast majority of the fish came out of shallow water on boards & long lines while the deep water dipsy bite was very slow.



Anyhow, I think I am just going to let the pics fly.

kinda whj. sometimes we'll troll with a 6hp kicker and the buckets are not needed but when we get sick of the 2 stroke fumes we'll run the big motor (90hp 4str) and use one or two buckets to keep the speed down. the trout like it slow this time of year.
