Trout are in shallow right now -- I have been sight fishing for them in less than 15 fow, so really don't need the flasher unless you are hitting kokes. I am hitting 11M on Saturday -- I need a good bicep and tricep work out (Hand auger). Should be a beautiful day according to weather.com, 40 degrees, no clouds. The last few times at 11M have been bizzare, NO WIND!!
