Low as it gets. My sister told me the haze is from the western fires?

This what the pigs left for me (I pick up garbage every day):

It was a rattle trap day:

Phil
I use a jig like that and then use a Ned TRD on the hook. Have caught a lot of fish with that setup.

Got out today for a few hours, only 2 keepers in the 13" variety. Upriver had a lot of color to it.
