La Cygne was slow as expected Thursday, but at least when I got one it was pretty nice. 1 fish short of a limit and a couple more shorts.

Best five with customers today at 18#. Pretty consistent pattern the past few weeks. Was giggling at all the boats in the hot water. Sounded like it was a tough day for them from the guys at the gatehouse..

3 years without a boat ended last night.   Can't wait to get out and fish again.

83 degrees and light winds, take your pick. I'm getting the urge to try Olathe or Hillsdale.

I didn't see any but the water temp are getting close. The monster that got caught out there yesterday looked like she was about to pop.

Had another good morning and was called off at 11:30 so not too bad. Just about when it had slowed down anyway. @Bluebasser86 and I have Flair and his buddies out on Wolf tomorrow.

Neat pics. I'm going to install the 93 tomorrow. Anyone want to come help me install it?

You might want to crank the front of your boat all the way to the roller next time you load it.

Worked on the boat all weekend. Really happy with my setup. Did all the season prep stuff, installed the 93SV and built a box for the front deck.  Had just enough left over carpet. Now I need to test the 93 :)

Here are some pictures and the video from the giant I caught at LaCygne this weekend. She weighed 10 ls 15 oz and released to fight another day.

Holy moley! What line did you have on that you were able to wrestle a bruiser that big out of brush without getting broke off?

Tested out the 93 today. Side imaging didn't show much cover. Thinking I need to wire it directly to the batt to give it more power. Unless anyone has an idea for me to try. Really loved having the GPS and maps. Super impressed with it overall. In this pic, on the left side were trees laying perpendicular to the shore, they barely show up on SI. Or the right is some interference I think I'm getting from a strake a couple inches from the transducer.

Looks like interference with your prop. Be sure that you run power to your cranking battery and I have a fuse on mine as well

Really an incredible fish. How long did it take for you to realize it was a bass? I've caught a ton of drum off that bank, that's what I would have been thinking the whole way. Good to hear she's back in the lake, looks like the ol gal was about to pop.

I had no idea what I had until I got her to the surface. When they get wrapped up a two pounder came make you think you really have something lol

You should be running 800kHz also. If your unit allows. Also play with the range. I like 70 ft. to start and you can go up and down from there. Blue seems to be the best color palette for me when side scanning.

 

Here's a screenshot of a big rockpile I took last week.

Hope you get to keep that lake record for a long time!
