Although we have been seeing and landing almost all giants lately, it's still good to see that there are some future fish growing in the lake.  As you can see from the picture, Scott enjoyed the battle that a low 30 incher can put up.  We had a few close calls by some brutes this morning, but for John and Scott, they will have to wait until next time.  I'm not sure what happened to the biters this morning, but goll darnit, they didn't come in the boat.  The weather looked good, but sometimes you just cannot make them eat.  I'll be on the water again in a few hours, so we'll see if they snap.  Darn fish...If they only knew that John was going to put them on Kare 11 news...Maybe they would have decided to grab his bait instead of miss it.  Still a great trip on the water, and considerably milder than the past couple of weeks.  Thanks for the fun guys.  Until next time, Keep on Livin the Dream!
