Loc: A small blue spot on planet ea...
Quickly turned into a LIMIT
And to think I almost left without a rod bang
I figured that I should test the new TM in fishing conditions, so I grabbed 2 rods before Belinda toted me to the ramp.
The 1st spot I stopped at didn't show many fish, but I really didn't care as I wanted to get familiar with running the trolling motor.
After running thru the different functions of the controls on the TM, I eased to the top of a submerged tree top, dropped a Mr. Fry in Black Emerald Shiner down 12', instantly and to my surprise THUMP





I caught a couple of 10-11" fish which I threw back and lost a couple.
My back was hurting, so when it's like that, I've learned to not set the hook, just reel. I lose about 30% of the fish, but I get to fish longer.

I idled over to a huge laydown in 24 fow, eased to the upwind side, set the "Spot Lock" on my trolling motor and commenced to piercing some lips! hooked

When I looked in the livewell, I realized I better start keeping count, I broke out my bead counter from Jigum's Enterprizes and got the tally correct.
I wanted to check some other spots, so I motored up and took off on a short ride to another spot. It's a small bp in 15 fow right on the edge of the creek channel. It was LOADED!
In no time at all, I had slid all 25 of my beads to the bottom. I called Belinda and asked her to meet me at the ramp, "I have a limit"
She said, "NO way - Already???"
I lost quite a few very nice fish, but Hey, they will be there another day!

We have a few fish frys each year & I give some away.
I bag them in 10 filets to a bag, enough for me & Belinda then a couple of fish sandwiches the next day.
I just filled the freezer, so I'm through keeping fish for now.

Hey Todd! I have to take my hat off to you! Anyone can catch fish when they are biting but only a true fisherman can catch them when one else can! thumb
