Had a great day on Collins. Jcat joined me on the prowl for some bows. I arrived to find the gate locked at 6:42 am but didn't have to wait long. While paying, the fine lady in the office reported it being very slow for boats and shore fishing. I knew from that it would be tuff. Launched at 7:30 am and was on the troll at 7:42am. At 8:53 am I finally hooked and landed a almost 14 incher. The fish hit a gold red Midge Wobbler at 12 ft otw and with a 75 ft setback. At 10:43 am I get a SDR on a silver mini troll and a crawler. From 11 am till noon I parked on the beach a dunked green power bait and also orange. No luck. Despite the slow catching it was a great day.

Locked gate. I was getting worried. :/

The lake is way way down. The spillway is way way up in the right corner
