A Nice One!

Recommended Posts

 Got up this morning (4:30) to give this small lake another try. Was pretty sure there were some nice fish in it, just never caught one. Don't fish it much. The whole bank line is REALLY overgrown and most of it is so steep you have to be careful or end taking a swim.

 Fished from 5:00 to around 9:30 and didn't get a bite. Figured I had really offended the fishing gods with just my presence and they weren't about to smile on me. Decided to head for the house. Headed back around the lake and got to a corner where there is a lot of dead wood and lay downs. Just one more cast. Went ahead and cast into the middle of it, hooked and landed a PB!!!!!!!! Talked myself into buying a dig. scale not long ago, thankfully. She weighed 7lbs. 14ozs. If I had had a little bit of flat ground, I would have done an "Ike". Won't get me into the Double Digit Club but a really nice fish...

Good work.  Congrats on a great fish.  That'd be a great fish by anyone's standards.  Lot to be proud of there, that's for sure.

 Thanks everyone ;)! It was a great feeling when you set the hook and KNOW you're in for a ride, and feels just as good when you slip her back in the water and watch her swim off...
