Used to see commercials for Ronco Pocket fisherman when I was a kid all the time but Dad said we had good enough stuff and it was a waste of money. Last winter I bought one new online and finally broke it out Sunday on the GMR in Dayton. Took one of my regular poles out and walked to the rocks and current telling TJ I was gonna get a smallie and channel today. Got a smallmouth about 14 inches long on the back half a chub. Had a few tags by cats but nothing hooked. Went back down to the main poles and scored a few more channels on the regular stuff. TJ went back up and got a few more channels and by then the turtles had moved into deeper water. I walked out with a chunk of bluegill on a hook and caught this and had to take a pic with the pole next to it. LOL.
