Did a little work to the old outboard last week which means a test drive was in order. Headed up to Ice House Monday afternoon hoping to avoid the crowds. Was promptly greeted by a thunderstorm. After the storm passed I headed out on the water for a little test and tune and of course some fishing. Lake was perfect, only a few kayaks and one other boat. Only fished topwater as I just wasn't in the mood to mess around with down riggers. Caught 3 lost 1 and had a several more hits. No hold overs just fresh planters 10-13in range. Wiggle hoochie behind a watermelon dodger caught 2, wedding ring with crawler behind dodger and a neon orange needlefish behind flashers. Off the water before 8, boat runs great and now planes again so all in all not a bad afternoon .

Thats good to hear that the fish are biting. I am going up there at the end of June with the family and am planning of fishing a bit from my kayak. I will have to keep in mind what you used and hopefully it will work out a little bit for me too lol.
