    take a damsel dancing

    I caught twenty-five panfish in just under an hour tonight. They all struck a lead eyed olive wooly bugger (lazy version of a damsel nymph). Around here anyway the fish are gorging on them.

    Hoping to deceive a salmon

    I've been invited to go trolling on Lake Michigan. We mostly use crankbaits in the spring but I want to try this too.
