Too much fun.

Need to get my ass back out there now that it's warming up.

Spring Break fishing trip on the Santee River. Rigging up to get a large stripped bass prowling the edge of the cypress trees. The wife is in full blown Captain Ahab mode so this could get interesting. Photos soon.

Came close. She was using a small sunfish my oldest caught as bait and had her rod secured to a tree while I stayed at the lake casting. I heard him breach and saw the ripples at the furthest edge of the cypress. 30 seconds later, her line goes taught and starts to spool out. Damn fish took off; crossed my line and went into the cypress roots. By the time I cut my line free, and the wife got hers out of the cypress he had stolen the bait.

Some pics -

According to the park ranger, it is most likely a gar prowling the edge of the cypress. Switched to some metal leads today, but too windy with the thunderstorms passing through the area, nothing biting.

Only catch of the day -

Wife landed him this morning in the rain - 19 inch (48 cm) chain pickerel.

and of course ....

I fished quite a bit when I was a teenager.  I have too many other interests now and fishing seems boring to me now as well.

@lwfitz, GREAT crappies man!

@ Mr RatMan, awesome picture!

Out today in Wisconsin, my favorite place to fish... Have not fished there in 18 years. My favorite to fish for are smallies and walleyes... No smallies today but I did catch my first walleye in 18 years also.

We also saw a Bald Eagle come extremely close to us and the water, that was pretty cool



We were Lake Koshkonong on the Rock River in Fort Atkinson, very serene place

About 100 F (~38 C) heat index here.

So we went to the lake for some fishing -

Last trip to the lake this year -





checked out the local falls; nice change after a some 2 pound bass jumped off their hooks.
