What a difference a day makes. Yesterday it was very busy out there at 11am, today 3 people out there. I did not have a good feeling, but I only had an hour so I thought I would give it a shot. There was some open water down by Riva's so I headed over there. First cast, BAM, a real nice 9" perch. Toss a second cast, put the rod down to put the first one in the bag, and BAM another hit. It actually pulled my rod 4-5 inches toward the edge. Turned out to be 10"er. Holy crap, I finally got here at the right time. "I am going to nail them today", I thought to myself. 30 minutes later not another bite.
So I decided to go back to more traditional NP methods. Put the rod down and watch closely. It worked much better. Finished with a total of 8 keepers, (8"+). Not bad for a hour, but man I thought I was in for one of those days. Oh well, there's always tomorrow.
