I was surprised.

Recommended Posts

The wife took my truck over the weekend, so I wasn't able to drag the boat out.  I figured, I'd just hit the old shorelines I used to fish from just to pass the time.

Got down to one of my spots and it was loaded with people fishing nearby piers and many boats launching and coming in.  Overall, it was pretty busy.

Tied on a Strike King jig w/trailer and lubed it up with Megastrike (for the 1st time).  Casted towards a busy boat ramp, I felt a tick.  

No wayis this for real?  I thought to myself.  I paused for a sec and set the hook.

Landed a nice 5 lber, which hit the lure right up against the shoreline.  People nearby flocked in to see it.  Some guy in a van took a few pictures of me with it.

I heard one guy on the pier say, we've been fishing all this time with no bites and he comes here and catches a huge one as I headed back to my car.

To be honestI wasn't expecting to catch anything especially under the condition it was; especially a nice 5 lber next to a ramp that had boats continuously coming in and out.

I was very surprised to say the least.
