I've been in a deep slump for a month or so. Went to Lathrop SP this morning to try to break out on some pike. Another terrible day until about noon, when these wipers blew up right next to the boat. Got two before they went down. Great fun for about 10 minutes having these things tear up my reel.

Nice, congrats.
wipers are a blast when they boil chasing shad. when I lived in UT. we would set with our boat motor running and when they would start a boil we would full throttle to the boil shut down cast and game on. lots of fun for sure.

Awesome fish to catch, gets the adrenalin going. My hands always shake after hooking a big one.

Hey GoNe_FiShIn_11. Brilliant move - I left your Lowrance in my garage for this trip. Sure anxious to go back and try to figure out where these things are sulking all day. Learning how to fish all over again with this deep water stuff.
