Don’t need any bait

Went this morning looking for golden tails, water was to low for fly rod so instead used spoons and hard plastic, caught 7 reds all released to fight another day 🧙‍♂️

Wiz,Dat sure looks like some mighty fine marsh reds with their golden or bronze sides!!!Buddy and I launched de totally rebuilt Southfork this am round about 6:25 or so and good news/bad news.Good news is not only is Southfork water-tight and super-fine with her new Grizzly Grip all around but she screams and we got her up to 32.5 mph,not bad at all for 50 hp Johnson!!Other bit of good news is Lowrance unit works great at lower speeds but loses sonar around 19-20 mph and might be simple transducer adjustment.Not really that big a deal since I have Navionics upgrade with charts color-coded for depths and my main use will bs navigating to duck trenasses and spots we pretty much know but in foggy conditions gonna be nice to have trails to follow.Buddy and I were amazed at both the down and side scan views and might be a simple fix to why I lose depth capabilities at higher speeds(transducer was kicked up a tad,possibly from low water spot when we scouted for teal-saw zero ducks other than one nice Woodie).Might take her back out on Bayou Lacombe Monday and other bit of bad news is one of my baitcasters got knocked outta boat this am and landed on driveway and think older son did not see her and she got run over!!!Getting ready to scope out Amazon Prime for replacement Lew's Laser MG fine reel think she ran me maybe $79!!

Rather not hear about the ole Southfork. Just good fishing reports would be great.

Thanks!
