A regular fish fest in the canal today. Water temp was very warm, 85.5 when I left this afternoon, but the fish were still cooperative. We ended up with about 15 crappies, 14 channels, 2 white bass, 2 walleyes and 2 saugers, including this nice one that went 20 1/2″, 2lbs 9oz. They sure are good looking fish.
Dad had something hit his crank so hard that when he reeled up, there was nothing left. The crank was gone, and so was the fish. Sure would have liked to see what that was.
Last week I had a fish on that I could not stop. The hook finally popped free. One of these days I sure hope we get some of these beasts into the boat!
Not even past the middle of July yet; I wonder how hot the water can get? Sure would be nice if we could get some rain at some point. We definitely need it.
