Finally

I have been on a real poor streak.  I blanked four days in a row.  I'm talking nothing, not even a hit from a carp.  So, I've been moving around, fishing different spots, hoping to find some place that would break my poor streak.  Well, the persistence has finally paid off.  I thought I was going to blank again tonight when suddenly, the screeching alarm broke a silent and dead evening.  Turns out the runner was a good looking, 15 lb.,  fully scaled mirror (see pic).  The fish hit unflavored maize fished ahead of a method ball. It was the only hit of the evening, but no one's complaining!

  2. Went to RWP early this morning and within thirty seconds of getting bait in the water I had a screaming run. Unfortunately I didn't get to it on time. For the next three hours all I had was turtles thieving my bait. Murphy's Law...
