    Great Lake so much cover to fish! Better results(not by much!) Hayden got a nice 2.91 lber and I avoided the stripe with a 12” clone. Both fish came on Zman crawz Hayden’s fish bit on the beach in 1’ of water and mine came off some deep structure in 20’ of water.
    On a side note, I was watching my bait on the fish finder at San Vee a month ago in 20’ of water and I realized the area of the bottom that the FF shows is not that large( maybe 10’ or so). So I called garmin and asked about other transducers with a wider cone angle. The tech told me about a Garmin GT52HW-TM that is better suited for under 75’ of water fishing. It has a much wider cone angle and higher power than my GT51 that I bought with the FF. So I bought one and installed it last week and we got to play with it at el cap last Saturday. What a difference!! Crystal clear images on side scan and beautiful arches on traditional scan. I know, I know you’re saying “well then why didn’t they catch more fish”. I don’t know why we didn’t fill the boat,but we’re going back to San Vee next Saturday just to look at all that structure!!!!! And hopefully catch some
