      Jeff B..I'm sure I could run less and fish my spots more thoroughly and still do pretty good... but I like fishing them fast and moving around....there's ...more days that the run and gun doesnt work...
    4. Jeff B 0
      It's hard to cover as much water as you do in my kayak. Builds a strong case for me to buy a boat...lol. GREAT day for you Rick, thanks for sharing!
