Quote(s) of the Day: “It’s 3 to 1 Mike! No dad, it’s 2 to 1. The one you lost doesn’t count!”
Decker flows are below average for this time of year which is odd given the other waters surrounding, which are what we call blown out. With that being said, fishing on deckers right now can be great and mike and Ernie did great today. This was the second time that we’ve fished together as a group and it was like we fished together just a week ago. Mike and Earnie remembered pretty much everything I had taught them two years ago which resulted in the first brown to the net which was mike. First fish of the morning was a 17” brown with a good girth. Ernie followed suit with the biggest fish of the day and as we go to take a picture, fish flop!! Shortly after Ernie hooked a couple more browns bug got the best of us and than cane back to land his second brown of the morning. Ernie was giving his boy a hard time cuz he was in the lead but mike knew there was still time on his side. After lunch we found a few more fish to end the day. Thanks for a fun day guys and hope to see you again soon
