SUMMARY :
It's days like today that you live for. You never know when they're going to happen but they always do. Days when it seems that you can do no wrong. Days where you are in perfect rhythm. Days that help really push the stats from a fair to good season. Days where you just don't ever want it to end.

Today was just one of those magical days. Forty-five fish in just four hours! Simply incredible. Also, what a tremendous number of white perch. Thirty three individual specimens that dominated every other species today. I even moved the boat around today and tried to pick different spots. Regardless of location, the bite and the species were very consistent.
