A buddy and I headed up to URL yesterday to travel around and hopefully find some of those elusive slabs. Went out of Agassiz and started fishing about 9:45. First spot we tried 15-20 holes without marking a fish on the vex. Then moved north and once again tried 10-15 holes without a mark on the vex. Our final move for the day we headed west almost to the end of the road. Drilled at least 25 holes and stayed in that area til 7 p.m. My buddy caught two walleye both about 5-6 inches long. He also had a crappie get caught in the transducer and get off his hook. I, on the other hand, did not mark a single fish all day until about 5:30 p.m. but I couldn't get it to bite. Marked a second fish at 6:15 and was able to get it to bite. Turned out to be a nice 14" crappie. First URL slab for me in about 2 years. Never marked another fish the rest of the night. It was a tough day out on the mighty Red, but that one slab seemed to make the trip worth it somehow. Hope everyone else out there this weekend had better luck than we did.


Good Luck,
Helmetguy


Cookie- Let me know what you think of the Hog Hauler's once you get a chance to use them. Also, I will possibly be up again next weekend. Hopefully, my luck will change.
