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"
