Gorgeous Day with decent action

Went up to Carter yesterday, getting there about 9am. Not a lot of people, and spacing was good. Ended up on the southwest shore, off a point, and between my nephew (7), myself, and my buddy, ended up with just north of 20 fish, most between 14" and 17" with my nephew catching the biggest at just over 21". Kept 8 for a little smoker action, most meat was orange/pink with the bigger ones lighter. Also bigger ones were probably brood fish just released as they were still full of eggs. PB was best with Tequila Fire, and Chartreuse being successful as well. Hardly a breeze, good fishing, and bluebird skies will be hard to come by in the next few months, so this was a day to enjoy.

Sounds like a lot of fun and enjoy those orange meated ones for sure. It does sound like they put in some of those brood fish, fun to catch but not too good on the table but smoked they should be OK.

Those sound like some fat bows. Nice work man.

Most were caught on either Tequila Fire or Chartreuse Power Bait, but did get a couple on worms/egg. Was running a double rig with both items, and they were mainly after the PB. Also caught a couple slow dragging a Panther Martin in gold/black. Might have to make another trip up there before this next storm hits on Sunday.

Saw some pictures on facebook of rainbows coming out of there my gosh they got some thick fish coming out. I wonder what their feeding on in there.
