All in all it was a great day in the company of good friends.
Great pics Coalman! I've been trolling tube and worm rigs for awhile now and I've learned a couple of things. I seem to get more fish trolling against the current in a river. I catch them trolling with the current too, just not as many. Every river is a little different, but as far as colors go, red has always been a "go to". Don't ignore the pink tubes either, stripers love 'em! If there's blues around, try an orange one...it drives them nuts! Good luck out there.
