I decided to take the family on a canoe trip at Morgan's canoe rental. My son brought his fly pole and an open bail. 50 feet into the trip his fly reel fell into the deepest spot of the river and got hung up. He tried to get it but couldn't. He switched to the other pole with a single hooked rooster tail and got a smb. We stopped at the rope swing and went of a couple of times and ate lunch.
He switched to a smaller crank bait and that started the frenzy. It started with another little smb. Then in a slower spot he hooked up and the drag was peeling off. A good 15 inch smb jumped out and spit it.

Soon after that he caught his first drum

Then when we were almost to the end he caught his first river sauguy. The dog was very interested in the fish flopping in the boat. overall it was a perfect labor day.

To paraphrase an old beer commercial, "It doesn't get any better than that."

Sorry he lost the reel, but congrats on the saugfish.
