Excited but Disappointed
My buddy and I fished a few banks today over near Hamilton Creek from about 4pm to 7pm. Windy as heck we only fished the windy banks for about 15 minutes and then headed for much more calmer waters lol. I know the pros love the wind but i just cant deal with it lol. I read a few posts yesterday about people having success with watermelon red flake worms and lizards so thats all i cast today. The first fish i encountered (note i said encountered lol) felt like i was hung on a rock, sorta, after i felt a tug back i set the hook, and for some reason i still thought i was hung on a rock. I couldnt budge it. After it jumped up and spit my bait out i realized it was about 5 or 6 pounds. I was sick lol. That one bit the lizard. All in all we got several bites, had several fish on, had an impressive bag if we had landed them all, but only ended up with one keeper on the boat while landing a few other non keepers. I will have nightmares about all the fish i lost today. Need to up my game and my tackle.
