    Hey BF,
    Good looking fish. Were they only hitting dries, or did you not try anything down? These fish always put up a good fight too. Glad to see there's still some decent fish this late in the summer. Thanks for the report and pictures.

    I caught some on drys and some just below the surface.

    The really smooth surface was my driveway after I got home......and just before that rainbow hit the frying pan on my grill!!

    :P A quick release into the grease is a nice way to end a day, occasionally.
