    Default 3/21 report - Launched at Cawtaba

    We headed up to the lake yesterday on a whim. Without being able to see a recent satellite image and fishing in the fog till afternoon it was a bit slow going in the morning. We started out fishing around Green with one pull back and no hook up. We started out pulling a mix of bandits and p10's, with varied weights and distances back. Moved over to E can after a while, didn't fish real long there as the water just looked too dirty. So after moving between S. Bass and Cawtaba fishing the chocolate there for a bit (Lots of marks) we headed out for North of Kellys just as soon as the fog broke. Setup North of kelly's and pulled 3 fish in about an hour and a half while the sun was shining. As the sun went back and the lake got a bit more choppy we never caught another fish. Back at the ramp at 5:00 we were the last rig in the parking lot. Fish were caught on Bandits 125 back no weights, trolling at 1.5 mph. Khaki color bandit caught all of the fish.

    Thank you for the thorough report. Did you trying going slower at all? Seems like most are going .8 - 1.0. I ask cause I'm concerned I can't go slow enough.

    Was there a fish on that other board when you took that picture? The flag is down and it's going back towards the center of the boat...

    Nice job that day working them out!

    We started out going slower, but our kicker died and wouldn't run right. So we had one trolling bag and was able to get 1.5 into the wind and waves with the main motor.

    The board with the flag down was due to me losing one of the springs over the side of the boat, Good eye though. With that being said is there a standard size spring for those flags? I can't quite justify paying the higher prices for the flag kit just for a new spring. We also have several others that need worked on, I would like to just get a handful of those springs and keep them on the boat. Probably should just take one into the hardware and match up something close.

    At the hardware store, you want a C-39 spring.
