I like to C & R Troll for sUMo S-eyes & rarely bring one in for a photo .. Well my next door neighbor "BlueGill Web" just can't get the hang of trollin' for S-Eyes on his Toon over shallow 3' humps
Any-Who ~ Ole' Web asked me if-in' I'd bring him back a couple of eaters for dinner, as he was a-gettin' burnt-out on Gills & Crappie .. Ole' Raybob says "Sure enough, No problem" LoL
So I dropped the Beater I-Boat in the ~~~~~ & commenced S-Eye trollin' for a hour & a half or so .. I came in with the one above & a pair of 18-19" Eaters in the livewell. I slipped the 7 on the bottom hook & the 2 eaters a couple of notches up the stringer & hung it off my seawall - heheh!
Then I walked around to the other side of my fishin' shack to Web's place & told him I brought him back a couple of Eaters ~ Ole' Web follows me back to the boathouse seawall & lifts the stringer aways & says "Oh Yeah" when the 1st one comes in sight & then as he goes to lift the stringer outta the ~~~~~ he Hollars drops the stringer & Kraps his Pants when he sees the bottom one
It was Choice for Sure!!!
She was C& R-ed to grow a Lil' more after the Photo & who knows, she may return another day to put one to Ole' Web
The year before last I was a-cleanin' some S-Eyes for the Old Folks across the Channel & I noticed Web was asleep on his back deck with a couple of long rods out & a half spent Brewskii on the table ~ well Ole' Raybob slips on over to the rod Web has stuck into my chain-link with a meatless S-Eye .. puts it on his hook with a handful of stones down da chops & sticks it back in the channel with his bobber under .. I wait about 10 min & tell a few neighbors, then walk around to Webs & wake him up with a cold one on the belly, once he gets over that he notices his bobber is down .. Ya can figure the rest out for yourself ~ Twas a Blast!!!
Dang .. just noticed this is the Cold Water MB ~ gettin' old & drifty for sure!
I caught that salmon 1-1.5 miles south of millhollow park.......
Went back 3 days later and found 2 groups of salmon spawning (nothing of real size-all 10 pounds or less). I heard that last year a ton of salmon were caught up by route 2 bridge area.
