    Joefish and I hit up Morena from a rental boat and got stuck into the fish. Water vis was low and we started off with reaction baits with no luck. Switched to plastics and found sporadic but consistent bites. Together we boated 25-30 fish with definite 7 keepers.

    Little bit of light breeze in the morning, turning into a light wind before noon and a bit breezier in the afternoon. Thanks Loopup for lending us the trolling motor, seriously saved us a lot of hassle!

    Saw this fish following my magnum trick, cast out and hooked her.

I was planning on catching the big ones, but I couldnt because you were on your game. good pics on where you casted an congrats on getting all the big ones in the boat. well have to do it again.

    I guess I had luck stored up from several less than stellar trips. Of course you were driving the boat pretty much every time we got into fish. I would have figured the rock wall would have held more fish, I wanted to get into a wacky or jig bite too. One of the most fun fishing days in months.
