went out today for a few hours between 4:30 pm and 7pm. Hit a local lake not far from home. Really wasnt expecting much, but i did have some night crawlers left from the weekend to drown. Put out 1 pole on the bottom with a crawler...and did some casting. after about 20 mins...i look over..bottom rod is pulling like crazy...i run over set the hook...hmmm nice fish....landed a 20 inch catfish. Maybe i'm not just wasting time? Reset the line and continued casting..picked up 3 smaller bass 10-12 range. Ok...this was worth the drive i'm thinking. Make another cast and wham...fish on...after a good fight i landed a nice fat 16 inch largemouth. Ok..definitely worth the trip!! Picked up 2 more smaller bass...then wham fish on...this is a really good fish...landed a fat 17 inch largemouth bass. I look over at my bottom pole ..i'm getting a hit there...picked up a small bluegill. didnt have another hit on the bottom after that. Getting ready to call it a day...nah..have to make a few more casts! Bammm ...fish on....nice 15 inch bass. So from going out to waste some time...I ended up having a pretty good day!!
And of course i took a few breaks from casting and picked up some small pieces of trash and deposited them in the garbage can!! a couple handfuls less junk at this lake. so a good day fishing and a cleaner shore then when i arrived!!! all fish were released to fight another day!
