Used the canoe as I didn't feel like swimming to get to the wadeable holes on this stretch.

The topwater strike of these fish is not addictive... I been doin' it for 30 years... And, I ain't hooked... Really, I can quit any time I want...

Gotta love it! While I prefer fishing moving water, a good bend in the rod trumps everything else.
