Fished east with uncle, good friend, and my 10 yr old son this past Saturday. Finished with 8 trout and 1 red. Topwater bite was on until the sun came up. Finished over deep shell bouncing lures on the bottom. Had a great time. My son has already put in a request for a rod and reel to fight trout and reds..He caught no keepers, but did catch a few undersized trout and lost two reds. He reallly enjoyed it. Good Luck.
