Gave mom the perfect mother's day gift and took my dad out of the house for the day fishing

Fished 12Mile all day...7:30a-3:45p and would have fished longer if the 40mph winds hadnt been blowing us all over. Fished eyes and managed a livewell of them. Nothing special, but all brought to the knife (killing the lake this fall, so all stocker and eater fish come home to be restocked or eaten ). Got lots of yellow bass, a decent cat (restocked), 2 dink crappies, and the walleyes. Wind was killer but the bite was ok once I put a pattern together. Water temps were low for this time of year and the temp at the dam was lower than it was 2 weeks ago....that wasnt good. Still managed fish and took a beating from the wind to show for it!

Trolled spinners and cranks, but no luck on cranks. Spinners w/bottom bouncers took the fish. Crawlers took more fish, but minnows also caught fish. Problem using crawlers is you go through a TON of them with the yellow bass in there. Was going to switch over to gulp crawlers to eliminate this but left before I did. Tried to jig and slip bobber over pods of fish, but the winds were just to strong to do this effectively and my poor boat just wouldnt stay anchored, even with two anchors out! Only got one fish (a little yellow bass) on the cranks.
