I'm on a Boat!

Finally got everything together that I needed to take out my Dad's old boat again. Decided to see if she could still float on a local lake (so if there were issues it wouldn't be a big problem to head back home) with the whole family. Felt good to be at the oars again (my grandpa always insisted that they were ladies) and we found a few willing fish to top it all off. 

Nice day to be out
 Got out and tried a few different techniques, but trolling a Jake's Spin-A-Lure was the only thing that brought any success. This lake has always been a bit strange to me, even though there are some great hatches here the fish seem very reluctant to come to the surface. Like last night when there was a good mayfly spinner fall mixed with some huge caddis and we saw only one fish actually jump.

Worked this fish like an old pro
Little brother and mommy put on the clinic catching all four of our fish, but we all had fun testing out the new (to us) boat. Should make this summer even more fun! Hope you can get out and enjoy the water.
