Headed down JM early today and was excited to catch some Wiper and Eyes and really hoping to find some slab crappies. Instead I stumbled on to some drum and had blast! Never thought I'd enjoy it so much, but they hit like a snag and after catching a dozen of them along the dam went back to trolling for eyes. Only one small eye and blanked on wipers. But I may now be the Freshwater Drum King! :)
Drums are a blast man fun fight and I think are cool looking fish. I never say a word bad on catching one other then it looked like a wiper haha. Good job bro glad you had some fun. bronxx will probably give you some awesome advice on how to catch the fish and what he could catch...

I also went to John Martin over the weekend.
Seems like the water is still a bit cold and the fish are not as active for this time of the year because of the inconsistent weather. If the weather stays in the 70's and 80's for the next few weeks the action should be good.
We managed to pull in 1 walleye and 10-15 white bass.
