Well, did well at San V on top (morning session) just before my trip up north (Sioux Falls, SD) to celebrate my mom's 90th a few days ago. Did well up there too, although I only got out on the water for two hours. Loved the mist over the lake at sunrise, all systems should be go. Half the rods, pretty ready for bear (mostly all top). Was a bit tough on top, so went for the 'for sure' one, a popper. The whole clan with mom. She's doing great for her age. Photo includes all six 'little brothers' (I'm the oldest), who are all bigger (taller, and mostly heavier too) than me!!! One came from Missouri, two of us from So. Cal. Some live up there, and even three with her! (Should you ask, no. No sisters). ;/0 My first ever pike. My brother Chris had just mentioned there was a bass called a 'white', aka 'silver'. Moments later I caught one, on top. Part of the 'Family Park' pone, there is another section about this big connected by a small opening. My bass came by the pole in the water, as well as the white bass further down the bank. My trifecta on the popper. One pike, one largemouth and one white bass. Told my brother "I won', my three fish weighed more than his dozen 5" fish, mostly baby pike. "No", he said, he'd won, caught 'more'! What do. you say? ;/) This was the biggie got at noon at San V. Topwater, thank U lord.
