    Had a fishing derby yesterday at a local pond that is known for good size channels and large carp. There was 25 people fishing and 11 were using many differents baits for carp and channels but not one taker. :sad2::sad2:
    Kids did catch some bluegill and small bass. :smile2::smile2:
    This derby lasted 3 hours. What saved the day was the good food and a couple from Ohio, who are friends of ours, that happened to bring their banjo and guitar and played gospel and old time country. We finally left at 7:30. Derby started at 2PM. A Bad Day Of Fishing Turns Out To Be A Good Day.

    Sometimes just being in the great out doors with people who have similar interests is enough, sounds like you had a good time!

    Might not have caught the cats but you caught something even better! Great friends and great music mixed in with kids having fun is hard to beat when the fish aren't biting.
    Sounds like an awesome time to me.

    Sure was and we hadn't planned it. Anyway the way it turned out. Our plans didn't work (large catfish & giant carp). Thanks God they didn't. Think everyone had much better time. No complaints on not catching fish. Another day.
