The bite in Central Oklahoma has been off. At least for me. Finally managed my first decent size cat of the year. It hit a bluegill head about 11:30 am on an overcast day. Almost lost the pole. I had it propped up on a five gallon bucket as the wife and I were packing up. I was reeling in another pole when it took off towards the water and all I could say was... Look at that pole (wife screamed get it! lol). Well I must have been half asleep when I tossed it out because I never engaged the spool after casting and it bird-nested on me. I was forced to land it by pulling the line through the 11ft pole, it was further complicated by it being close to 150 yds off shore. Long battle but fun.
