Sounds like a fun day, Bassrat. I messed around in Wilmington with the black helgies and got 0 Bass. Dam Bait shop is still out of the medium weighted keepers, so I went with the bullet weight again, pegged this time.
I'm convinced now that Wilmington pretty much sucks, a Bass here and there notwithstanding.
I won't be back there for quite some time.
I did bring the kids to the South Island park to try for some cats left from the morning kids derby. Only managed some small ones.
Finished the night at a local pond and the kiddies had a blast catching 7"-10" gills and 15" crappies. No Bass there either, but I was kept busy with the baiting and de-hooking.
See ya on the water.....just not in Wilmington.
P.S.....Anyone catch anything with the red shad helgies?
