|Mille Lacs This Morning Around 8AM|
I spent the afternoon getting my tackle organized. The last couple of years I neglected to do this after my last tournament of the year leaving organizing until Spring. It's a good thing. I needed to do some work on the Tackle Warehouse that I wouldn't have known about otherwise.
I ended up not getting to Rock about 6:20 or so. It was dead calm. I decided to throw the Stanley Phantom Topwater. Sure enough what I'm pretty sure was a nice bass nailed it but didn't hook up. I tried throwing the craw tube as a follow up bait, but she gone. On pretty much my next cast with the Phantom I had a fish hit me beyond the weed clumps to the South. I stuck this one.

I then headed to the GOMH. I grabbed two rods and headed to the NE side. Somebody spoke to me and it was then that I noticed somebody was fishing off the bridge on the South side. Turns out it was Peter. After throwing a few casts on the NE side I joined him up on the bridge. I told him what I've been getting lately. He didn't get anything, not even a bullhead. We talked about going ice fishing this winter. Looks like I am going to have to get my ice fishing gear figured out.
