Good morning guys, checking in on the Patriot this morning. Today we decided to fish out deep to get some fish in the sacks for our many passengers and we were not disappointed with our results. Definitely was a slow pick at first this morning with a few sculpin here and there but when the conditions decided to stay consistent we repositioned and for the last hour of fishing it was biting really well. We put on about 100 fish in that last hour on top of what we had with many of them being on the bigger side.Sculpin

Tomorrow we leave the dock again at 6 am for another half day and reservations are really light, so come on out.

Decent action last night on the Patriot as we caught a couple of handfuls of quality bass with not a bad pick on the sculpin throughout the night.  Everyone seemed to have a good time and a majority had some fish to take home.

Sand Bass

Plenty of room on the twilight tonight which leaves at 7pm.

Just giving a little wrap-up report for our half-day trip this afternoon. Started off fishing for sack fillers which produced some very nice quality perch fishing, which for those who took advantage had no shortage of fish.  Then turned our focus on shallow water bass and sculpin fishing which was a very slow pick on keeper fish but nonetheless a fair amount of action on short fish.Sand Bass

Trips go daily, we're scheduled to leave the dock again tomorrow at 12:30 and there's plenty of room! 😄
