.... at least when it comes to Walleye fishing.
"That's not something you see every time you go fishing," I said to Brian Harding last Sunday as I dropped a 3/8-ounce jig into the river while he lowered his electric trolling motor from the bow.
We were about 30 yards port of the ship's stern, so it would be easy to remember the spot if we caught fish. Of course, once this new ship leaves to join the fleet this year, we'll have to find other landmarks.
They weren't jumping into anyone's boat, but Harding said a few friends reported action in the river "near the LCS." In other words, the USS Fort Worth, LCS-3, one of the Navy's "littoral combat ships" under construction at Marinette Marine.
