Took a lady friend fishing for her first time this afternoon. We boated up to the Cordova area, set her up with new pole and reel, put on a worm hoping she would catch something. I hadn't even got my leech on yet when she had a strike. Fought it for about 5 mins, got it alongside the boat and then when I reached to grab it (yea, no net!) it broke the line. Was at least a 5 and I'm guessing 8 lb cat. Didnt catch a thing the rest of the afternoon. Will get a net tomorrow!! Hey any Iowa folks want to show me some of the areas closer to LeClaire?
