ventured out to pardee today along with the kids. lines wet a lil' after 5am. me and my step son were the ones doing the fishing. day started off at the jackson spillway and caught 2 prior to 630am. once the sun hit the lake the bite disappeared. from that point it was a dragger til 1030am. almost called it a day as the sun was beginning to take a toll on everyone. moved on over to the marina area and noticed the trout boils. dropped the powerbait/poweregg combo at the island bridge area and hooked into a rainbow immediately. at that point i noticed the maintenance guy, he came by to empty out the trash and mentioned "they had just planted over a hour ago, the bite should heat up." mind set, we were definitely staying. made sure the kids had enough water and food and it was back to fishing. both me and my step son limited out by 3pm. even though it took 10 hours, it's nice that i can experience days like this with my kids. i'm glad they have it in 'em to drag it out. =)

Good job, sounds like perfect timing.

Last time I was there the water was getting real warm. kinda surprised they're still planting.

Glad to see it paid off for you and your kids to hang around and kudos to the maintenance guy for telling you the 411 about the plant.:cool2:
