"Small" ones, Yes. Sometimes none at all. Fished all my life around and in the area where you live and the fishing can be fantastic, but I am amazed at the quality of the fish in the area around Lake Bistineau. I truly belive fishing from the paddleing boats is an advantage. May not can go 10 miles from the landing but can fish places others can't/don't. Plus they are very stealthy.Bee, do y'all ever catch SMALL ones?! Mighty chunky fish. I'd say that boat is working pretty good.
