I got out a little later than I should have. There was snow on the truck and on the road. As far as I can tell I was the second one at the access. A couple of trucks drove on when I was unloading. I walked out which ate more time. It was quite windy. I got to the area drilled three holes and put the camera down first. Then I put waxies down on the bobber rod. The first fish of the morning was the bull gill that bit at about 7:50AM. I was not on point with keeping the fish. I had to fill a bucket with water using the hawg trough in hopes the fish would survive if I wanted to release it. That took time and the fish went belly up so I had to keep it. I'm pretty sure there were others down there that were gone by the time I got my line back down. About had an hour later the tullibee showed up. There were at least two of them by the marks I had. Fortunately, I got a bite and hooked it in the shoot. Excellent fight. I got the camera and transducer out, but I got caught up on the bobber line. Landing these slippery things is tricky. I was using 3lb test. After that, I might have had one more tullibee come through. But who knows I also had crappies come through that I got to see on the camera. I watched a crappie charge the Fly and suck it in, but I didn't connect with the hookset. I had perch messing with me by the bottom and eventually put the camera down to watch them. It was quite windy and my right foot was cold so I called it a day at 9:30.
