    I got back a little while ago and had to tell you all about the great night I had. I went out after work, I work second shift, and got to the lake around 11:45. Tonight was the second time I got to try out my new r&r, an Abu 6000. I baited it with some cut gill and my other rod with Sonnys. I only caught 3 fish in about 3 hours but I caught my first fish, about a 4 or 5# channel on my new rod. I LOVE that thing!!! The reel that is. It casts great and reels in great. I gotta get another. lol I had another run on some more cut bait, an awesome run, the line was just peelin', but somehow I missed it that time. It was the first time I have caught anything on cutbait. Thanks to all who helped me out with that. I also got to see an awesome light show (lighhtning) from about 50 miles away or so. Not a great night catching, I released the fish, but I had a great time!

    Sounds like you had a goos night. The best thing about a new r&r is the anticipation of catching the first fish on it.

    Glad you had a good night. New stuff is fun. I love that first fish on a new rig especially if it is a good one. Keep up with the cutbait. Day in or day out it produces better than most any other.
