Nothing doing on M on bucktails and Believers. Decided to make the move and scale down and slow down with the bluebird skies. Fished the hard-tail in orange belly perch, sitting in 15 and casting to the weed edge in 11. Had four follows on the windblown shore followed by the bite. All action was between 3:30 and 4pm. Fish taped 42 inches. First fish in my boat. :)
