Tuesday, I met member Mark Boy from the BOC, my first member to hook up with. A really classy guy, even with my stitches I managed to wrangle a few bluegill from a park pond in an hour before heading to meet him at the GMR. He was really surprised how quickly I showed up nice live various sized gills. Had a great time catching my first Mr. Whiskers this year and first river cats in many years. A lot of dinkies 3 -4 inches right and left on chicken liver, night crawlers and a combo of both. 1 would have been a pound or so but pulled loose at the shore and Mark got this carp. I had 1 good run on a blue gill near a timber jam that got tied up so who knows what might have happened but it was nice finally meeting one of our brothers and great to be out doing what I love among other things the most, catching cats. Thanks Mark! And he is all about these park ponds and creeks near me where I have inadvertantly learned to catch bait over the past 35 or so years while fishing for stocked channels and and occaisional flatties! The brotherhood, the sharing, the obsession.
