The recipe for a great day on the water. That’s it. Last weekend John, Don, and I took the Towee out for it’s maiden voyage. It was a damned good day. John and Don both picked up on rowing quickly and that made it awesome for me cause then I could fish. Whoever said buying a boat means you row folks? Ha!
Not having to man the sticks all day let me throw some meat to the pre spawn smallies. The water was moving and was up a bit. Still turbid from the winter as well. I fished 250 sink and for cold fast water, did damned well. I broke off a legit fish over 21 inches long. At my hand. At least 2 other guys saw it and called it as a massive fish. Kinda heartbreaking but it’s a good sign for things to come.
Other friends have been doing very well on other sections of the river. 2014 is shaping up to be one hell of a fishy year for central Indiana.
