Had last week off and got to go fishing 8 out of 9 days. Things were pretty slow. Got skunked a couple of times. Tried 3 different streams, 2 different lakes. Our best day was 11 largemouth with Mrs. BK catching 8 of them. Sunday morning rolled around with the dogs waking me up at 4:30 like they always do. I dealt with them and laid down on the couch debating on whether to go fishing or not. I dragged myself up and hit the local flow. The numbers were still not there, 3 smallies and a rocky. But one smallie was 18 inches and another was 17. I usually don't get 2 big ones like that in one day so I was very happy. It made up for a slow week of fishing to end the vacation on a high note. 18 incher 17 incher 17 incher swimming away, just like he should.
