Techniques & Tips

We are not getting alot of numbers but some big fish are being landed. Last week two friends each landed fish in the 20lb. range and I personally netted a 16 1/2 lb. Let me mention again that you want to put your time in when we have some off weather or fish the early morn. and late eve. if it is going to be bluebird.

7-Day Forecast

Mixed bag of weather for the next 7 days. Pack your cold weather gear.
