    got my mom to drive me down the the bridge so i could camp out and try out some of the new stuff ive learned. got down there at around seven to catch bait. couldnt catch a single bluegill. nbo big deal, just figured they wernt bitten. so i got out my cast net that i brought to catch shad. figured id give it a try for some gills. threw it about 3 times and caught 3 that were about 1/2 inch. so i was pretty mad about that. i went for my 4th throw and was hung on a rock. it was too deep to try to get in and get it out so i had to try to pull it loose. and u can guess what happend..ripped about a 4ft hole in it..

    so there i was, no bait, and a ripped throw net, no cell signal, and no way home..

    so i packed up all my gear and walked home 2 miles up hill all the way..

    makes me want to not go fishin for a while :sad2:

    Boy that does suck. Fishing is supposed to be relaxing,but it gets hard when things start to go wrong.

    Seems to be some bad luck going around lately, especially with regard to baitfish. Keep plugging away, the fishing gods will reward you for your troubles.
