Head Boats

Just a quick question.  Was thinking about taking some good friends out as a thank you for some good help they gave me.  I have never been on the Edward John, but was thinking that route.  Anybody that has been on it, was it a good time.  Or are there any others up there that are good.  Any advice would be appreciated.  Thanks.

    Was out on the the EJ the weekend before Memorial day in the evening and we did well caught 20 between my girlfriend and I and largest was about 14.5"  the whole boat in total had well over 150 caught one group had 66 (4 adults and 3/4 kids.)  Was a great time the younger guys on the evening run that day were awesome.   But I've never herd much bad about either of them.

    I thought there were 3 head boats now? The Danny O I believe is a new one. 
    I've been out on the EJ 8 times during the morning trip. I've never limited out, but I've caught fish. To many people for my liking.

    Too many people for my liking. 


    +1.  I don't have any need to use a headboat thankfully, but never again.

    The Edward John is a great way to enjoy a day out on the lake. Nobody always catches there limit but they try hard to make it a good time for you. You cant beat it for the money You cant go out on your own and buy bait for how they take care of you. Sit back and enjoy. I have been going on the EJ for 5 year and it's an art to catch a limit. You really need to learn  HOW to catch perch This year so far has been tough to fish.  The weather will be getting better and the water temp is rising and the perch will be hot. FISH perch on the EJ for the company and new friends not how many fish you take home. I'll be up there soon 
    Have fun TRYING to catch Perch,

    Thanks for all the info.  I will look into it futher as the summer goes on.  Cannot go for a few weeks. Just looking for a enjoyable time.  The fish part will be a bonus.

    I've made three trips this year and limited out on two of them, only got 3 on another. Can't max out all the time.
     

    Let's go fishing!
