My son and I finally caught something!

  1. Finally!! I got a work buddy kind enough to take the son and I out on Hoover last Saturday. Hit the water about 6:15, and not soon after we started landing crappie (8-9in). After the bite died, we decided to troll for eyes, I used a rapala grey shad rap(deep diver). I was smashing some doritos when all of a sudden my pole morphs into a C shape. I yell, "MMMMPPPPHHH!!!" cause I still had the Doritos in the mouth. Anyway, my buddy helped with the drag (otherwise I would have likely tried to muscle it and lose it) and 10 min later.....landed a 8lb cat. My personal best ever. All in all, my son got to catch a batch, I hooked into something above a pound, and the morning was beautiful.....what a day.
  2. Congrats on the great day!! Keep at it...there are fish to be caught.
