Today was about redemption and new hobbies. David Murdoch brought his friend Joe Allred out for a day of fishing before Joe gets married this coming Saturday. David got his redemption, his trip a couple of weeks ago was a little light on landed fish, today He had a great day with numerous fish to hand including the nice male pictured above. Joe had the perfect rookie day, learned how to cast, and landed some nice fish including the nice hen. I suspect Joe has developed a new hobby that will, I’m sure, make his new bride very happy. We are seeing some fresher fish with the more seasonable weather which should continue for the next couple of days. Targeting deeper runs still produces the best numbers of fish as they have not been pressured as hard as the “easy” fish.
