Shwookie and I hit the koko again this week, water level excellent and boy is it clear, see bottom 4 feet of water. What a different river than the ones around here, current is a bunch quicker, the main forage seems to be baitfish, pods everywhere, crawdads not even close to what the Darby has, haven't even seen one there yet, but did I say minnows everywhere? Took us a bit to figure out what they wanted, put on a weighted tube, that was the ticket. caught a few nice Sm bunch of dink SM and rockies, lost 3 nice SM, let me tell you about the one though. Hooked a HOG HOG HOG about 15 yards below a huge tangle of trees in DEEP water, current is moving me away about 1-2 mph, SM starts STRIPPING line from my BAITCASTER with 30 lb fireline, I tighten it almost full, she turns me around in the current, pulls me upstream heading for snag, I'm yelling at Brock to do something(I don't know what, I was crazy by then) its still pulling line, I don't know how, rod is bent more than I ever seen it, she heads into deep tree(I can see about 4-5 feet down) and she does a tango around the tree limbs and I'm stuck. I tried everything to get it out, thought about diving in, Brock couldn't touch with his paddle, I'm livid by now. Never saw the fish, BUT I'm 99% sure it was a SM, my PB lost SM. Had to cut the line, darn braid and heavy hook I had I bet if I had my truck close I could hook it up to the hitch and drag that tree and SM out! Then I said a bunch of bad things, threw my paddle, then had a cigar. I said my peace,lol. Heres a couple pics, also I forgot, saw lots of deer AND a BALD EAGLE!!! Very cool. Back to the Darby next time... PS- Junky: Brock was MUCH later than you were, almost 2 hours!!!!! My wife isn't very pleased and doesn't buy my "story", I need to learn to lie better.
