Was out for a couple of hours yesterday (time was limited as usual) on the west side of the Catawba Peninsula to avoid the east winds. Dragged around some meat and Bandits but no luck. Marked a #hit pot full but no luck. I was mainly in 25' of water.

The bright side of yesterday, it was the first time I was able to use my new electric trolling motor. Best thing I've bought for the boat so far.

I was out in the same area yesterday afternoon (2:30-5-30) for a few hours myself. Two of us picked up 10 walleye running bandits and flicker minnows. we were a little shallower, between 18 and 21 ft. I wanted to go out west of green island, but the wind kept us in close.

First trip of the year. Went out on a buddie's boat. 4 of us. Pulled mostly Bandits on 6 rods, leads 45 to 110. Deeper leads seemed to work best. Started off pretty fast and furious but slowed down as morning wore on. We ended up with 18 before calling it a day. No monsters but no throwbacks either, just a nice grade of eaters.

Grilled my fresh caught dinner on the Blackstone griddle.
