The numbers doesn't make it sound like the lake is going up much but 2 feet or so since the last time I was out (2 weeks ago) and the lake was a foreign body of water to me today. What a difference.
My new rod and reel that I got for X-Mas (another post) is totally my new favorite set-up. Anyone looking for a new rod look no further than Dobyns DX series and for the money the Abu Garcia STX Gen 3 I got just plane rocks. I can cast so much further than my other worm rod/reel (G.Loomis GL2/Quantum Smoke reel) with the exact same set-up and the senstivity is just silly good. No comparison between the two set-ups. Night and day.
