Back to the Bear
Last weekend was a break from the river and lots of fun with all the BFTers that were at the flotilla. Today was back to the river in an attempt to finally get a Cat worthy of the contest.

Was a beautiful morning, light to variable breeze, warm not hot (yet), no bugs (yet) Smile
Got my lines wet at 7:51 a.m and had a nice (for me) Cat landed at 8:17 a.m. And that was just about all she wrote for today.

Did catch one junior size Cat at my 3rd spot of the day about 11:20, but not really worth posting on the contest.

Good job. Caught my first kitty while sitting on the rock in your 3rd spot. Hope to see you out there one of these days.

Was out there today, but in the boat. Was a really nice day. Boated 2 contest worthy Cats and one big Carp to replenish my bait, just in time too.

Got a bit of a late start, had lines in the water at first bend upriver from the ramp, 5 minutes later had first Cat boated. He swallowed my 4 /0 circle hook so far down, couldn't see it. Cut the line, did the CPR thing and tied on a new hook.

About 20 min. after that with new and freshly baited hook, had reel drag screaming. Set hook, (I thought) head shake and bottom roll for about 20 yards up to the boat, then my line came sling shotting back at me. Still had the hook, but bait all gone.

Worked a couple more holes along the north bank towards the hunt club. Was rewarded with several nibbles, bites and bait thefts until another Cat got greedy.
Cat # 2 boated.

Was about out of bait, put a worm on a 6/0 Octopus hook, cast out next to a big log along the bank. BIG Carp sucked it in.

Carp now resides in several zip lock bags to use as bait next few trips.
27 inch long, 10 lb. 13 oz. Carp. Fat and no eggs.

Great day today. May be back out there tomorrow, but just bank tangling this time. I have the white GMC with the USAF Retired decal on back window.

Sorry bout that John. Did you make it out today, Saturday ? I was on the river in the boat, someone honked at me from the road, but I couldn't see the vehicle cuz of the high reeds. I did better today than I have all year, so far.

Nice job. Hopefully you did well today with some good fresh bait. Do you prefer the boat or shore? I sure like the convenience of shore fishing, but I picked up a little row boat last year that I'm slowly turning into a fish boat for small wakeless waters and floating the river. Can't wait to get it out and explore new stretches. Should be ready for fishing soon. Watch out!
