Went to Rufus Woods today. Kinda cold, 18 degrees. Fished from 8:30am to 9:15 am and had our limits. One 8 pounds, one 6 pounds, and 2 four pounds. Also lost two at the boat that were approx 5 pounds we guessed. What a day. Sunny and great fishing.

Hay bob you seem like the expert around this lake. Is it better to be fishing from bank or boat. Thanks Great catch!

Fish Man - I'm not an expert, I've only been there twice. Both times I've used my boat. We have seen people catch some decent fish from shore, but I think the boat is better, you can cover much more area by trolling.

Great fish, Bob. I'm envious, gashed a finger helping a friend install a service panel at his house so my wife and I won,t be able to fish this weekend, we were really psyched for it ,we,ll do a small lake near home (making our friend go fishing so he can help my wife with the canoe(her idea!) Finger should be healed in a month or so, we,ll try again, it's obviosly worth the long drive and cold temps,good luck and thanks for the info on bridgeport. bob rao
