thanks guys looking forward to fishing some new waters in the spring, it doesnt matter to me whats on the end of my line as long as i'm out on the water. merry christmas to all and happy new year. we'll talk next year.There are certainly lots of smallies in the StJohn river system below F'ton. As Bob says I have caught lots of pickeral in Harts Lake, but few bass. It may be better fishing early before the weeds get too thick.
