Tried out the new fishing gear last night
Guess I should start with the road trip to get there. Road was not just nearly flooded. It was underwater. A little further down, there was a good foot or more of water. The only way we knew we were still on the road - they had staked the sides of the road. So wasn't my favorite drive.
Anyhow, we got there. Got set up with my new fishing rod.
Poor thing didn't catch a single fish yesterday. I wonder if Colin was just not casting it into the pocket where the fish were... Anyhow. It was a fun night. And I did catch some fish. They were on Colin's rod, but here was the first catch of the night.
Yep. That's two fish on one line. It had a small walleye to the right on one part of the pickrel rig, and a jackfish on the other. We put the walleye back. Gave the jackfish away. It was the only fish we brought back. Caught about 3 or 4 more little ones. Nothing worth keeping.
Oh, and I finally grabbed one. I wore my glove, but I grabbed a fish, and took the hook out, and put it back. Actually, I did 3 fish. Yeah me!
