Lotsnake, there is a lot to know about fishing the big pond. Been doing it for 13-14 years now, and still learning new tricks. The lake has changed a lot too, since I started.
If you are getting a couple or 3 fish every time out, consider it great for a rookie!
For gosh sakes, we don't always catch 10, nor do all the charters. Some days are just real tough! I am just happy I haven't been skunked in about 3 years, and that's more luck I think than anything.
Heck post what you get, what works or what didn't, it is sure to help someone anyway! Maybe me? :wink:
