Car Show and Wiper fishing afterwards
Car Show was slow, 250 cars give or take, HOT, there was hydro boat races on river, and Reds kicking the rocky mountain oysters off the Rockies, so small crowd. 4 game sweep, chasin' the Cardinals!
Wiper fishing afterwards was slow to, Creekwalker and I put in yaks at Meldahl dam around 7pm, barges and high water made upstream eddy very fast and rough. Got into downstream flow, drifted and cast 2" and 4" shad bodies, no hits.
Put on huge 6" power bait shad body on 1/2oz hyperstriper jig, got noticed in a hurry, close to 2' gar, thankfully it bit line and lure off before I got it in yak, didn't have my clips with me! :)
Paddled upstream and drifted back a couple times, fished creek mouth, too muddy, too high, too late, too little?
Barge pilots being very considerate, backing off engines as they came up on us. Glad to have light stick with me (actually rechargeable we sell for garages, makes a great stern lamp.)
Pulled out after dark, still beats sitting on the couch.....
