There's one word that can describe the trip we had this morning..."WOW"! We started out with below freezing temps and very little wind which actually pleasant, then as the morning progressed the wind cranked up and I mean really "cranked up". "BUT", when you combine these kind of elements, sometimes it can get the fish "cranked up" also. We used 3/4 oz. Rat-L-Traps around 6-8 ft. of grass most of the morning, but when we picked up the Echo Crankbait the action got more aggressive, especially when we got a "Big-G HAWG" to latch on and that got us "cranked up" as well. Despite the tough windy conditions we had one fantastic morning of fishing. Get out and have some fun. Mike Carter
