    Well, what a day! Planned on getting out around 6am, but my lazy rear was too tired from being :S w/ Flathunter on Sat night, so left around 10AM.

    Got to this spot, a new area I found.

    Water was just too shallow, or so I thought. About 30 minutes into it, my clicker went nuts. Rod started bouncing. I was about to pee my pants. Grabbed the rod , set the hook & nothing. Man.... I frgot that I was using circle hooks. So.... put on some more frozen Skipjack. Not much anction other than a tiny, tiny hit every few minutes. So i decided to put on some doughball for carps. Did that and holly cow, it was on. I caught 3 small chaneels, aprox 1-3 pounds each, all within 15 minutes. Then the big one hit. Nearly knocked the rod from the holder, and man, these are real heavy holders. I fought this sucker for 15-20 minutes, giving it everything I had. My arms were tired, I was sweating, just praying the circle hook was in good. Finally got the big dude in. Wow what a cat, ended up weighing........ Na, just kidding, got the usual :S (Jack you & Rhonda can leave now ;) I know you stayed waiting for this post!)

    Had a few turtles hit today, It is freaking amazaing what they can do to a bait. Looked like they took my skip & turned it inside out. Fished one new spot & one spot that I've always wanted to fish. Marked these both as "Done-Never will do again"

    When it doesnt go right, I agree buddy. Just think though, we've had some good times in the last couple years. It's been worth it to me, man. Maybe a good day of nothing but Carping would cheer ya up. Whatever I can do just say it! We'll get into them, man I promise. If I win the lottery Jack, we'll be heading down to NC! We'll get the big ones!

    I hope my attitude changes by mid may..But I have been off work the last 3 days and have fished 5 different locations, put in appx 22 hrs, and caught 5 fish, nothing over 6-lbs...I think catching that 50-lb flat a few years ago, ruined me.
    I have enjoyed our time on the water to Bryan, but I blame myself when you have to drive all the way home after taking yet another skunking.

    No way man, dont do that. I would rather drive the 1 20 min (made it quick last night) than to drive 30 min. Hell, we both should have changed spots Sat, neither of us had a good feelign about that one spot. I know I for one was just too tired to change.
