    Well today was the first official day of my vacation and my wife had to work 13 hours which means I was left with my 2 boys, one 5 and one 8 months all day long. I was ready to pull my hair out if I had any by the time I finally got them to sleep. So I went to the kitchen and fried up some hot dogs with garlic so when momma got home I could walk down to the local reservoir for a little relaxing. So I decided to hit a spot that normally doesn't produce alot of fish but its easy to get to, there is a drain cover for me to sit on, and there is a street light close enough that I can see to tie a new set-up on if I get a snag but not close enough to drive me nuts. So my one pole was already rigged up so I threw a dog on and cast out. While I was tying the second pole up my first rod slammed down so I reeled that fish in, a 2.7 lb channel, re-baited it and cast back out. I finished tying the other on and in mid-cast my other rod slammed again. So I set my second pole down and grab the first to reel it in. As soon as I start reeling it my other rod slams. It was an eventful night to say the least, I caught 18 fish none really of any size, biggest was only about 5 pounds, in just over an hour. I didn't really plan to catch more then one I was more after just some peace and quiet and relaxing but I'm not complaining about a night like this.
