Got a late start this morning, didn't get on the water till almost noon oooh: 1st fish in the boat was a white perch, which immediately became bait. Then, while trolling, I thought that I got stuck on the bottom - rod was bent over and line coming out against the drag. So I back the boat up some and started reeling, but the rod stayed bent over & line going out. What fun! I thought that I had my 20# channel, but it turned out to be only 6#, 24" long. I'll tell you what, tho, he fought much harder than the 25# blue I caught on Lake Moultrie this spring! Mean & nasty, that's what he was, and he went back in the water after he posed for this picture. Maybe he was so mad cause I caught him on shrimp instead of real bait :tounge_out: Unfortunately, that was it for the rest of the day. Had a few hellatious hits in the late afternoon, on one a brim head, one on blueback herring, and the other on shrimp, but I missed'em :sad2: And saw a coupla goats on goat island (what they doin' on there anyway?). That's it until next week, as I"m going to Myrtle Beach this weekend for a lacrosse tournament.
