I watched it follow my Jerk-bait in to the bank, were it swallowed the lure!
I got home and in bed from the VA catfishing trip around 2:30 am tuesday morning. The wind forecast was good for a window in the morning so i was up before 6 am ...more and off i went to jig some lake trout in search of a real monster. Had my new Ardent C-Force reel spooled up with Gliss line...I was quite impressed! keeping these guys hooked coming up from 60-70ft+ of water doesn't have the greatest success rate usually, but i went 3/4 with the c-force/gliss paired with a light fenwick hmg. It really let me keep the fish cranking upwards without ripping the lure out while just barely squeaking out drag with the big head shakes. Hooked two other fish on two other set ups and dropped both. Fortunately landed this 29" bulldog...getting close to that true monster i can feel it!
almost 4 weeks have passed since i've caught a fish! the longest i've ever gone since i started fishing! Headed down to VA and put that noise to rest with ...more not 1, not 2, but 3 big fat blue cats all weighing in at 39-40lbs on the digital scale. the biggest going 44" and demolishing my PB by 15lbs.
This is officially the longest I think I've ever gone without catching a fish. I snagged a sucker in the tail but I'm not counting that! Sure I could go ...more catch something small to break the painful streak, but instead I'm heading south for a monster bluecat! Must end the skunk streak in style!
