Not the bass I was looking for, but always fun and good fighters. :)
A friend of mine inspired me to get out this weekend with his nice fat smallie caught Friday (left). I got out Monday and the water was 49 degrees. Spent a couple ...more hours trying and looking...nothing. Then found this sweet school of fish...tried at them for another hour... nothing... skunked. But at least I was on the river for a few hours. :)
Funny story about why we don’t use Barbie rods or other kid push button reels anymore: I was out fishing with my young girls...with Barbie rods. One of them gets ...more a big hit, sets the hook and starts reeling. Not only are these reels hard to reel with hefty fish, her line snapped inside the reel and quickly slipped out of the rod eyelets and into the water. Bummer... ...seconds later the other girl has a strike... or so we thought. As her lure came into the boat with no fish, we realized she had snagged the broken line of the first daughter’s fish. Happy ending: we hand reeled in this nice trout without the use of Barbie.
