What an awesome trip. I am not much of a writer and words wouldn't do it justice anyway.

The top 4 fish were 11 lb 12 oz. 11 lb 2 oz, 10 lb 9 oz, and 10lb 2 oz. A total of 4 9's and So many 8's and 7's we lost track!

I don't want Dietz to pick on me so here are some pics.

Carolina rigs in 15-25 feet of water. 10" Black and Blue worms and 8" watermelon/red lizards. I used a Flipping stick and she used a 6'6" MH Baitcasting rod.

Her first fish ever on a baitcasting rod was 9 lbs 11 oz!! (It's now her Rod & Reel..lol)

We used Angler's Inn. Although it is more expensive than some of the others, it is a first class operation.

I think the spawn down there is closer to February but I am not sure.

Approximate cost per person was 2,200 including airfare. There are other outfitters nearby that you could do for 1,500 to 1,600 easily. We fished for 3.5 days.

We towed the boat to Texas last month and spent almost $1000 per person. In Texas we caught around 15-20 fish and our biggest fish was 6 lbs 6 oz.

Trips are all inclusive - Guide, lodging, meals, open bar, transportation to and from airport, etc. You can even use their rods and reels if you would like. Bring your own tackle.

The water is so low now (it must be down 25-30 feet) that they are thinking June and July might end up being some of the best months ever. Rainy season starts sometime in July.

If you were ever going to take the wife fishing this is the place to do it. I never had to lift a finger to help her re-tie, get unsnagged, get backlashes out, etc. On second thought I guess it was time consuming having her with...I had to take ALOT of pictures!

    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
