    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.

    I did have to put it back together about half way through dragging that cat from between the rocks as the access for lube and line tangle door is a bit on the shy side of sturdy. Can't wait to lay into 10 pounder or better on it, at least the drag is easy to adjust on the fly.

    Great Job. Had an Uncle give me one of the originals when I was a kid while he was teaching me to tie knots. Thanks Unc... Actually seen one for sale at Rite Aid a while back. Brought back memories...
