Bruce, nice to finally meet you and your son out on the lake Saturday. As we were filleting our catch, we noticed the eggs forming in the whites too, the yearly cycle repeats over and over. Those who pay attention to that, can capitalize on great fishing year after year.Thanks for the rigging tips on the casting set up, always amazed at how some little difference in rigging, can make a major difference in the catch ratio, will have a 9' rod in the near future. Glad the hybrids made an appearance for you, (but glad I didn't have to clean as many as you did, Ha!). May have to sneak out a few more times before the colder weather arrives, and changes the pattern to dead sticking. Thanks for the reports, always good to see your son's little face beaming, with his cute little smile in the pictures, reminds me of many good times with my son while he was a little guy. Enjoy it, they grow up, move off and get too busy to fish with careers, etc.
