I went out 3 times in the past week and I got shut out 2 of those trips. On those 2 trips the new guys both got a fish. Kyle has a broken neck was able to land a nice 25 lb last Thurs night, his first flat ever. Then on Saturday John got his first one to the bank. He had lost 2 nice ones before when his line broke on 1 and his knot slipped on another. He was able to get a nice 32 lb for his first fish. Last night me, John, and Mickey went out. I scored my first double header. As we were netting my first fish my other pole took off. I landed a 22 lb and a 25 lb. John had to leave about 11:30 to get some sleep for work. It wasn't 5 minutes after he left Micky got a nice 37 lb. That was a good fight as Mickey got it on 25 lb line. I was using a balloon for a bobber set about a foot off the bank and Mickey was tight lining about 5 feet off the bank. All the fish were caught on bass, including the 2 previous trips.
