Good to hear the outboard behaved. Saturday was a day of firsts for me come to think of it - LMB, Pickerel, Crappie.
Maybe one day someone will explain why the latter is spelled one way but politely pronounced another - the double "p" doesn't explain it
I hit the Housatonic yesterday afternoon but the release schedule has a lot of highly colored water coming down (500 cfs). I managed to tempt a couple of SMB early on and then went to see if the carp were back in their hole. No sign yet - probably wont see much of them until the water levels drop back into the 100s.
