It was the best of days..It was the worst of days.. I think I read that some where. Anyhow, wife and I went out on Lake Winnipeg, at a spot where we've fished for about 35 years on shore..made all the new bait I've been reading about. Fished for 6.5 hours. Not one bit. Then as I started packing our vehicle to head home ( ~7:15PM), she hollered to bring the net, she had something big on, (two weeks ago she caught a 10 LB sturgeon). I got the net and she landed a 26 LB kittie cat.. That was the only bite for either of us all day. We then decided to stay ontil 10PM....No other bites...how do you figure? Anyhow , it was a great day in the sun and we had fun with that one fish. Caught it on a size 4/0 gamagatsu circle hook. loaded with a medium tiger shrimp and wrapped with worms.
