Good news and bad. I got some pretty good bites tonight, but didn't realize the line was twisted and was unable to set the hook.

I hope they can rebuild it over the winter.

They had a nice 2 piece surf rod at Walmart. Maybe next year.

Spent an hour removing and replacing a couple of treble hooks.

I accidentally caught a spawning brown trout yesterday. It was in an area where I've caught rainbows before but never browns. It was a nice sized fish but was just about dead by the time I got him in the net. Took maybe five minutes to get him resuscitated enough that he could swim off. I stopped fishing after that but I did find some more redds (spawning beds) with nice fish on them. Besides being mindful of the next generation of fish, I just don't feel right about targeting spawning fish. Sort of how David felt after he sneaked up on Saul dropping a deuce.

I quit. Too many limbs in the areas that are still acessible unless y'll want to crowdfund a boat for me.

What saltwater fish looks and moves like a tadpole?

I have found the spot. With the rig. Going back as soon as I can.

I went fishing and camping with friends. My friends are also pipe smokers. I decided to smoke a pipe while fishing for trout last night. As I lit my pipe one of my buddies asked me what I was smoking. I just opened a tin of MCC FMOTT. He then informed me that such tins were selling for a couple hundred bucks now.

You know, ignorance is bliss sometimes. I really didn’t need to know that. The entire time I smoked that bowl I envisioned smoldering hundred dollar bills. :lol:

We did catch a few trout anyway.

Unlike freshwater fish, a flounder bite will be like a quick tug.
