Opening Weekend 2011

What a great start to the 2011 season.  Friday found us on a great bluegill lake.  The weather north held off just long enough to get in a great day of Big Gills!   Some of these fish were pushing a pound.  All the fish were taken on top water bugs which just added to the fun.

Saturday found us on the St. Croix River.  Due to the high water on the Upper Mississippi we went to plan B.  The St.Croix is an excellent plan B and it didn’t disappoint.  The first fish of the day was a 20″ toad.  We watched fish after fish take our presentations.  It doesn’t get any better than watching big fish eat your fly.  The weather was great and the fishing remained strong all afternoon.  Congrats to Manny and Brian for a great start to a promising season.  Way to go guys!
