Went with the father-in-law today for my first day out this year, it wasn't too shabby. I ended up catching 7 to his one with the biggest weighing in at around 7 pounds..not bad for my first day on the local West Frankfort lake. I did however come back one rod and reel shy, it is now resting at the bottom of the lake. Was a nice Daiwa Millennium too, given to me by my Father-in-law. Other than that...the fish were biting ok.
