It's been a while since I've posted. That's because my van was in getting the brakes fixed so I actually went nearly 9 days without fishing. My wife found me curled up in the closet sweating and groaning just like those heroin addicts on TV. I finally made it out Wednesday evening and went again yesterday evening. Wednesday, I took a friend out with his daughter as her birthday present. The little girl caught 6 nice ones and her Dad had to reel one in during a little flurry we had to make 7 total. It took a bit for us to get into them but she caught some nice fish averaging 4+ with a big of 6 lbs. We caught them all within 1 hr. Yesterday, I took my young nephew with me to Coralville. We fished from a little after 5 PM to a little before 8 PM and caught 14 or 15 nice fish. We couldn't catch a little one. The majority were 5 lbs + with a big of 7.5 lbs. and I'm certain we averaged 5 lbs or more. I heard other guys did well over the weekend anchor fishing with crawdads. I'm going out again today if I can get a break in the weather! Mike.
