Thank The Maker For Goldeye

My favorite bait is fresh cut goldeye and the one that help secure this flathead was caught in the same spot on a bobber with a worm attached to it. I am always very grateful when a goldeye is landed because they make excellent bait. I am assuming it is because they are natural to the body of water and because they are oily and bloody and must leave a nice scent trail. I plan to research that theory but for the time being it is a fact that they catch fish.



Wing Dikes Work For Me

Once again I was anchored on the back side of a wing dike casting into the hole that is created from it. Obviously I could have anchored above the hole further out into the river, but at this period of my boat experience I did not feel safe doing that. When you are tucked behind a wing dike you don’t worry about a floating tree getting fouled into your anchor line. You also feel the waves less from the jets skis and pleasure boat who are racing to the next sandbar to enjoy a beer.
