Market value, probably 5 bucks, laugh! Hope to see some of you guys tomorrow at the Gateway.
Had a half day trip today with grandfather and 4 grand-kids. Grandfathers directive: we don't care what kind of fish we catch and we aren't going to keep any. That made my choice of spots pretty easy, in four hours of fishing I gave up after a dozen or so casts with my jig rod and spent the rest of the time baiting and unhooking fish, as did grandfather. We caught a mixed bag of fish: perch, gills, smallmouth and a lot of rock bass. One particular eagle had some good eatin and provided a spectacular show, he wasn't very boat wary and came in close for rock bass. We fished humps with wood and rock in 6-9'.
Despite flat water and bright skies we caught almost all the fish on bobbers, glad the orders weren't for keeper walleyes, thinking it might have been a struggle today.
First couple weeks in August seems to be the most popular time of year for families, fish with a lot of kids, great fun.
