LOP had me worried today.
Every fishing guide starts the day a little worried. Did the fish move, can I find them . Will they bite. Then you catch a few fish, relax and enjoy the day with new found friends.
2 hours into our trip this morning we had 3 fish in the boat.... 3
There we were head down in a pouring rain, cold north rain with 3 fish.
Then the wind turned out of the south, the sun broke out and 3 hours later David and his pretty wife had 50 in the boat. At one time She was catching them so fast I was just throwing them in the bottom of the boat as I couldn’t get them on ice and back to her fast enough.
All fish caught in 15 to 20 foot of water on brush piles using minnows.

Good morning! You mind sharing a picture of the set up you use when using minnows? Have a Blessed Day!

I have never taken a picture of it but I use 12 pound mono with a slip cork. 1.4 oz slip sinker above a barrel swivel and then a #6 hook tied to 10" of fluorocarbon.
