We finally made it to Evers after passing a dozen duck hunters and one crappie angler. We are back in the main river that feeds this lake and it appears to be small river/creek fishing nirvana. Plenty of laydowns, stumps, etc., with an 8- to 12-foot channel.
He lost one good bite before we got here. But that's the only bite he's had. He did say he had some quality bites here in practice. Now it remains to be seen if he will have it to himself. We heard a big motor whining through the mud a couple of minutes ago. It's out of sight so it could be another competitor, spectator or one of the duck hunters.
Beautiful place so it wouldn't surprise me if all of them came back here.
