Well, got a super late start. Didn't get to the lake (Gaston Lake) until about 6am. Managed to net a few big Gizzard Shad at a creek. Put in the boat, and was fishing by 7am or so, fished Gaston Dam first and didn't even get a bite! So then we tried the mouth of Jimmies Creek, and not a bite there eithier, and I didn't see any of that topwater action anymore, strange. Now the fishing is looking pretty bad, it's about 8:45am and not a bite yet, not even a nibble. So we move to the mouth of Pea Hill, start drifting the bobbers, perfect wind coming across the lake. Well they were very concentrated on a certain spot, a sandbar type of thing near the....well, I'm not going to give my spot away. Anyway, about 9am the first run, my dads pole started going hard, looked out and the bobber was gone, he set the hook and got a decent little 6lb Blue in the boat. We were straightening that out, getting the fish in the cooler and stuff, when my pole just really got slammed, zzzzzttttttttt my drag was flying off my reel, as soon as I set the hook I knew I had at least a 10lber, after a 5 minutes fight I got the nice Blue Cat in the boat, 15lber. So we drifted back over that spot, our guest we took had a NICE fish, but he was new at this and set the hook with the clicker on....ouch, talk about a tangle. Didn't get that one of course. Then we started over with the drift again in that same great area, and our guest had another big run and made that same bad mistake but this time we managed to help him get the tangle out and get a hook set on the fish, he didn't know what to think, it was the biggest fish he has ever caught, turned out to be a 11lb Blue Cat, a good fighter. Then it was 10am, and we had to leave, but right before we reeled up my dads reel just started screaming, it was the FASTEST freshwater run I've ever heard and it turned out to only be a 7lb Channel Cat, but it was an AWESOME fight. This just shows how a bad day can improve so fast, this was a great day for sure. I was giving up right before we had the first bite, it just didn't seem like we were going to get anything. From my past experience I should have known better though then to give up before the last second, but I was just so tired and stuff, didn't get any sleep last night. Moral of this story, don't give up until the very last second, because things can change FAST. Here are a couple of pictures, first one is of my 15lb Blue. Second is of the cooler, you can't see all the fish though, we are going to eat 'em tonight or tommorow night.
