I hit the water yesterday w/ Powhatan and we had a interesting day. Last week he placed a post about rods going down and fish deciding they did not want to visit with him. I read all the stuff people suggested and I have fished with Chris several times and after seeing it first hand yesterday, it was so bad we were laughing, crying, cursing and downright giving up. It was so bad even when Chris had his rod hung on some structure even that came off.:smile2: I had several myself load the rod up, pick it up and start to fight only to have the fish decide otherwise. One fish in particular put my tip in the water and I could hardly get it out of the rod holder only to break me off:confused2: whatever he was he was big, score one for the fish. But on a serious note the amount of fish that got on and off was the most I had seen. And it's not like Chris is a rookie.....he knows his stuff, hooks, hook placement in the bait etc. We even met up w/ some other anglers and gave them some bait and they said they were having the same problems. Oh yeah, I'm no Jim Duncan but the weather report yesterday was cold! That was probably my first trip out that cold. Going down river at 8am @ 40mph in 30 degree weather is priceless. I have a picture of my face :crazy: Not a joke that realy is me! Happy New Year to all, and to all a warm night.
