Early on I saw about six northerns caught around me. Then a school of fish started chasing my spoon but they were obviously to small for the big spoon.
I switched rods and caught about twenty sunfish. threw all of them back because I was told that there were already tons of people with fish in line and most were pike.
I gave a couple kids some fish so they could go get jigs.
now I hear that half the prize list was won by panfish.
Kickin myself for that stupid move. Most of the ones I caught were really small anyhow. They still probably wouldn't have qualified.
Then my buddy leaves after a few beers and he got arrested for a DWI. I would have offered him a ride but I honestly thought he was OK even if he was asked to take a breathalyzer. Guess not, I don't feel bad for him though. That's the exact reason why I only drank one beer.
He's kickin himself for that, I'm sure.
All in all it was fun and the weather was awesome.
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
