Thanks for the info.....Augy wrote:A few of us were out there about a month ago but fished from shore. Nothing to brag about. We were right at the super low bridge. We picked up several smaller eyes from medium fatheads dragged along the bottom. I picked up a couple smallies, one off x-rap and one off jig and minnow. One technique that I definately want to try is using cut up bluegill. One guy caught a huge, probably 15+ lb striper using this method.
As far as the bait shop, we used medium roaches and crawlers the previous outing when we rented the boat from Greybeard's. Steve is a super sweet dude. I'm not much of a roach user so I couldn't tell you the quality of them but they seemed alright to me. But, I can tell you that the crawlers he had were the largest, plumpest, juiciest crawlers I have ever used.
Jason threw chicken livers the size of baseballs but didn't hook up. Hope that helps and good luck out there. I'll have to head out there sometime soon.
I understand I really am not blaming them for what happened but they could update ya on the website, Ive been lookin and they show a ton of nice boats and availability. Thats wasn't the case, there motors they had really need to be freshened up to...JasonN wrote:Yow! What an experience!
This is Steve's (Greybeards) first year renting boats at Heidecke. It was a different concessionaire in years past. He has said that he is starting with only 3 boats because, well, he is just starting out. Give him time though. He's a super nice guy and i'm sure the kinks will be worked out.
As for the guy who got in front of you, plain and simple... he was an asshole. But at least you stood up for yourself and got the boat (thought since in broke down the other guy might have been better off getting it instead of you!)
And don't be afraid to give the shore fishing a chance. Sometimes it's actually easier than getting a boat.
Few times back ont he lake front and I was over it.....BravesFan wrote:Hey Joe, sorry to hear about your frustrating experience. It's good to hear that you got some pay back with a good outing on the river the next day. Try not to let it bug you too much.
