day late, dollar short
Launched at oxbow after work and fished a few of the cove areas. Wasn't even marking any fish. The bank fishers said they caught a few crappies but that was it. I traveled quite a ways and really was having a hard time finding them. Only managed some small ones, a big channel cat and the biggest white bass I have ever caught. Had to be full of eggs as it was fat. Put up a huge fight, thought I had a saugeye. It was 16 inches but probably went 2+ pounds. Then the wind picked up and caught me by surprise (in a canoe). Almost capsized and lost a rod. It was a cheap combo that I got on clearance but it was my favorite because the reel NEVER seemed to get messed up. Damn!
