I got my first fish within 15 minutes of casting out and it took 3 1/2 hours to get 3 more (in a 20 minute span) for a total of 4 in a few minutes past 4 hours before I had to go and the rain rolled into the area. I would have stayed another 45 minutes or so, but I had an appointment and had to go.
Here are some pictures:
|This one was kind of a blooper. A passer-by agreed to take some pictures for me, but the fish had other plans.|
|The first fish caught me by surprise. |
I hadn't finished setting up and as you can tell didn't have a good strategy for self-timer pictures yet either.
|When fishing alone, sometimes you have to get creative with ways to take pictures. |
I snapped this one in the net.
|I'm not sure about the facial expression, but I enjoyed catching the fish.|
|Another fish; another picture in the net.|
Two of these fish never sounded the alarm, so it pays to watch the rods pretty close. Yesterday it may have made the difference between 2 fish and 4 fish. Sometimes it could mean the difference between no fish and a single fish. One's certainly better than none every day of the week and twice on Sunday.
Overall it was a good day. I'll take days like this as the season turns colder. Fishing days are going to end in a week or two for me.
I don't have any spots where the water stays warm. A warm water discharge would be nice. Drop me a note in the comments if you know of any warm water spots that have open water year-round.
