Thanks all for the good cheer.
The raffle was the only prize i ever won in my soon to be 70 years.
I haven't had the flasher out yet but hope to practice with it weather permitting.
I went out onto Wawasee Sunday and Monday and caught many bluegill and crappie and a 13 inch perch. Big crappie was 13" and bluegill was 10" plus a couple red eye rockbass. We had one 31" pike. I saw a bucket of 5 Wawasee perch all caught in 5' of water that were all 13"+. The fisherman that caught them showed me his lure a jigging rapala tipped with a spike on the treble. He said they only hit the rapala when its windy out. And it was windy today.
All my fish were caught in weeds in 8-12' mostly above the weeds 7' down. I don't do fishing tournaments but wished I had the info to post so you all could have caught more.
