I went camping for fatherday at the river and finally had almost a chance to catch some fish. WE went down to the river and I found two downed trees that were creating a break from the current and I got the first pole in the water for my daughter. I didn't even get turned around to get another ready before there was a fish in my face. I eventually got all four poles baited (15 minutes) but never got to put mine in the water because I was too busy removing hooks and rebaiting for the next 45 minutes. I finally was able to get my line wet to catch one nice fish then the rain and thunder started coming back. The water was stained and fish were holding in 1 to 3 feet of water, worms were to best bait.
