Jack and Dianne: Roosevelt - 9/17-21

Week of Sept. 17 to Sept. 21. Weather was pleasant; wind mild.

Finally had opportunity to get on the water after the long hot summer and other obligations.

1st day, we boated only 4 small fish, the largest of which was 12".

2nd day, we no success except a couple triploids incidental to the walleye fishing. 

3rd day, we again hooked triploids. 

After hooking triploids incidental to walleye fishing, we wrapped up our week going after them the evening before we left for home. Jack did catch a 17.5" smallmouth from shore. It liked 2yr. old marsh mellows. I used the old marsh mellow / worm set up. Eight times, he nipped the marsh mellows off my hook, and left worm untouched before he finally hooked himself.  Thinking I might have to try them on crawler harnesses. At any rate, I won't go back there without marsh mellows!
