got to fianally get to nashville illinois for a bit of bank fishing sunday perfect day weatherwise. only succeeded in a little 1/2 lb channel and a few gills and a small turtle but it felt good to get back there and spend time with son and brotherinlaw . we got there and went to baitshop on the lake and i found a 6 foot abu garcia baitcaster rod e glass med heavy action for 21 dollars i treated myself to it since i havent bought anything for myself in awhile and it felt good to get home and put a 6ooo c3 on it and cast it in backyard . really didnt need it but it looks like a nice one mated up to the reel . my brotherinlaw landed a 4 and 3 lb channel and made fish tortillas with them and a bunch of vegtables beans etc. i was informed by son that i missed the best food he had ever eatin made by fernando . just my luck !!!! hope everyone has a good fall catting !!!!
