We launched at 6:45 a.m. from Houseman Launch Ramp and proceeded upstream to our anchorage spot. We didn’t spot the grumpy beaver, but were treated to the antics of 4 otters. As cute as they were, we attended to our fishing.  We did well using Berkley power balls of various colors and configurations.  We hoped to come close to our limit and beat the generation scheduled for 10:00 a.m.  As has happened often lately, generation began at 9:00 a.m.  We decided to troll downstream pulling first a couple of Rapala lures then switching to a couple of flicker shads.  We were successful trolling and ended the day with our limit.  We met some LSU fans and exchanged prognostications of LSU vs.Tennessee, all in good fun of course.  We saw some deer, blue herons, kingfishers, and of course those lovable otters. Tight lines and see you on the river.
