Was out this morning testing my new 15 ft gregor.
The 12 ft valco I got is too small for two people the 15 is about perfect for willow and two pepole.
So first time out with the new boat down by monkey and this guy hit my 11 inch hatchery trout in red sided rainbow.
He ripped the clicker twice plug was on surface wakeing I seen bolth hits I picked up the rod gave a few jerks and wham hit it again. Pretty cool when you see them like that.
I missed the go pro button was bummed about that but got some pics .
The plug was one of the new ones I just got the other day so that's 2 different new ones in two trips ! Ac's work end of story

My friend nick got a 8.1 at 46 today on gold and black hatchery trout 11 inch.
As far as speed goes there is not a set speed you can go for many reasons
It depends on if your going up or down and how fast the river is going if your out 100 ft or 300 ft
If you got braid or mono or floro with that said I like to have the plug wakeing on the surface 90%of the time and 10% just under the surface so it looks like it is struggling.
I like going down river just cause it's less strain on the electric motor and battery but have got many fish both ways.
I use mono 30 # p line floro coated and have tried them all and it works for me.
When the plugs are on the surface I drive them into 3ft of water and back out I zig zag a lot
There is a lot of dead water out there watch you fish finder and fish where the fish are you wil notice them in the same spots everytime out
I have told everyone my spots and after that I go down and there is 3 boats on that spot I don't mind I just go to a differant spot there is plenty out there
Anyway I keep it at .8 to 3.2 mph 1.9 being my fav
Hope any of that helps I been rambling I know _________________ I'm a peacock , you got to let me fly !
