Been a few weeks since my last outing. Started off kind of rough with a noob mistake. I left my transom straps on when I was backing up the boat. I was wondering why I had to be so far in the water...

Much slower start today compared to the last 2 outings. I think with the partly sunny skies, the fish werent roaming as much and holding tighter to cover. Staying with the jerkbait, I didnt hookup ...

First cast @ about 10:30AM near a point. It was breezy along this area so figure I'll start off with the swimbait. I think on the 4th cast, fish on! And it was fighting really good. Ripping drag. ...
