The wind is relentless. And my trolling motor smoked yesterday.

Next year I'll take you up on that seat! :tup:

Nice pics.

Anyone else having any luck with the cats?

I caught a two foot channel while bottom bouncing for eyes. Everyone says the water is still too cold. I' ll be up on a short trip in a couple of weeks. We've picked up a few bugeyes, though. No one is catching many cats. And those caught are not big.
I saw you out there yesterday in your Lund.

I went Sunday Monday, trolled around a lot for Walleyes, plugs and worm harnesses. Only caught one small walleye. What boat were you in?

sounds like our experience was much the same as others, My Son caught our only catfish, we did pretty well on walleye and mixed in some bluegill perch and bass.

JJ.....you needed to head up river. We did chat a bit Monday. You had the red Lund?

Anyways...we picked up a 5 # cat in the flats. A ten # and a couple of smaller were caught there as well. Water temps at two feet were 71 degrees. Up at the island on the river it was 66.
