Got to the lake around 5, put in at Dutchman's. Lost my cast net on the 3rd throw so no shad for bait. Caught one perch and I decided to fish with it because I am not driving a hour + to not try to catch a cat. That one lone perch ended up bringing in a 27 and a 10 lber. 27 was caught on the head and the 10 on a fillet. Left the lake at 7:30 because my wife and child are impatient. Both fish CPR'd and not because that's what some people feel is right. It was because I didn't feel like filleting any fish.:big_smile: On a side note I just bought a Shakespeare SKP2000 at a pawn shop the other day and that's the reel that brought in the 27. That reel has quite a few negative reviews, but I didn't have any problem with it. It casted nice and reeled in that fish just fine. I also paired it up with a MH Ugly Stick which is my first Ugly Stick and I loved it. I think I am going to switch all my rods to Ugly's from the King Kat's I have now.
