Heard you all the way up here in Chicago, Brandon
X2 should have heard me this weekend
I never have, but my son does on occasion. Today was one of those occasions. It really ruins the "zone". We should have weighed a limit and been in the money, but due to operator error on his and my parts, we brought one fish to the scale. We changed our gameplan on a whim at 8am and went for a long run, locking thru the river, which basicaly took away 2 hours of fishing time. We found a 50 yard stretch of rip rap that had fish. Had 10 bites in a half hour landing (1) 3.5lbr(shoulda landed all 10). Went to another spot to let the rip rap fish settle down, with plans to return later. Torrential downpour with nasty lightning rolls in and we take cover under a bridge.for an hour until the lightning subsides. Well, my son is in a crappy mood because we missed 9 bites and he is deathly afraid of being on the water with lightning. Rain subsides a little but it's time to head back up thru the locks. We hit one more spot before we head in to weigh in. He hooks a 4lbr and while trying to flip it into the boat instead of letting me net it...well, you know what happened. Iconelli' moment.
