Sorry I missed your post, Just back from 2 days of boating.
All the bumperboats were at Ironworks, it was beautiful! No breeze early in the day. But we just couldn't get in the groove with jigging--bright yellow 2 oz jig at 80 feet was only rig that worked. Some folks had it down, especially yhe guides in pontoons seemed to have the technique figured out. Later we trolled up a few on leadcore around 20 feet down.
Kept seeing perch on the sonar, usually too deep to try for. Travelled up to ramp in Soap Creed, marked LOTS of fish, couldn't buy a bite with the whole tacklebox! Rescued some guy who was almost on the rocks Wednesday afternnon, towed him 5 miles back to Lake Fork Marina.
Alll the bridges are sitting very close to the water, and our BIG boat with bimini barely made it under--I'm sure the big pontoons aren't gonna make it!
We tried for the lakers both days, but got shut out. Managed a few browns and rainbows as well as a few kokanee. Weather was splendid, malt beverages plentiful, and the fraternity was very good. Next summer trip, we're going to get a guide for Jim's boat- he has all the gear needed, but needs to get the techniques down a little better. It's a 24" deck boat, so a bit challenging to fish from and control, but super comfy in all conditions.
