 We have our big Shipyard Labor Day party coming up and I needed to get a few more fillets for the grill so I headed out on a solo trip from 5-8 pm last night.  It was a windy bouncy evening on the lake and mostly trolled S and N.  I ended 3-4 with a 10, 12, and 16 lb king and the big fish tested my driving, fishing, and netting all-in-one capabilities.  Disappointingly, the one that got away broke the backing line behind the full core.  It was probably the biggest yet as it was ripping the line off the reel - where the backing line broke probably hadn't seen the light of day in quite some time.  I was mostly in 95-110 feet of water.   The 16 pounder came on a meet rig 70 down.  The other 2 were on a full core with a greasy chicken wing spoon.  They fish provided some great fillets for the grill on Sunday!

Mark and I are going out for trip tonight too...details to come.
