This happens A LOT; we run to an area and then stop to look for birds...while Jamie pulls out the binoculars to scope around, I take a look at the FF and we start marking fish! I honestly do not know how he does it. He has a sense as to what area and depth to concentrate on, and when we pull up to look around = voila, there's fish. Its amazing, but he does his homework before each trip. There is always a plan A and a plan B, sometimes a C. We've even launched in one river only to pack up, put the boat on the trailer and launch in another river. 50 mile+ days are the norm.
He is something, alright. I guess a summoner is as good word as any . I have even seen people give him Stillwater Smackits out on the water.
Great report and nice catch... encouraging for "aspiring" summoners with a hankerin for LTJ action.
