May 1st quick report

Recommended Posts

Fished an hour Thursday night and we caught a few stockers and a nice 19 inch brown.  Friday we started at the cable and to be flat honest it was brutally tough for us. First time we've ever made that drift without a fish. Drifted all the way to monkey island throwing jigs and dragging baits and throwing jerkbaits picking up a few here and there but nothing very consistent at all until we got past Cooper creek. Went back to the cable in the afternoon and again it was terrible for us. Started drifting back again and I finally caught a big brown that was 21 inches and weighed 5 even.  It's been as tough of a trip as we have ever had so far. We will see what Saturday brings but the big fish make up for the missed numbers!
