Final FF test. Only two hours on the water. Extremely windy and casting wasn't possible. Trolled a bit to check out the sonar and left. Matt was out yesterday and saw 3 spawning females, two of which were beat up, hanging in the shallows in the back. The one without marks was in the channel probably on its way in. Lots of dead weeds up to the surface in the skinny water. A couple more weeks and things should start moving. Looking forward to May.
