It was a head shaker - on my ultra lite rod - 4 lb test line - hook and a worm and splitshot - nice Brookie
Rick and his decapitated Brookie - the water was too cold for the fish to be active - 47 degrees!!!
The plan was to go stream fishing today - Rick's first fishing trip of the season. The truck was packed yesterday - we were all ready to go. This morning it was cloudy and overcast and rain was predicted. Rejean said it wasn't a good day to go out. But Rick and I talked him into it. Good thing as Rick and I caught the fish today. Rick caught his on the stream and I caught mine in Chris' favourite spot - sorry Chris - by the time you get up here there will be more there. I had 2 more on but the first one broke my line!!! and the second one, a rainbow that jumped, got off also. But it was fun none the less. Any day you can get out fishing is a good day. The fish gods weren't too happy with Rejean so he didn't get any.
We are off to Cal and Sal's for cocktail at 4pm - by the time we get home we can BBQ some burgers. Steve and Jason come in tomorrow afternoon. It will be a working week for them - starting on the bunkie!!! AND the pickerel season opens tonite at midnite - we'll be out tomorrow at 6pm - and I feel lucky!!!
See Ya Bye
