A month or so back I spent 4 days fishing with a neighbor, my father, my brother, and a few friends. Historically the fishing has been excellent on this trip, but this year it was disappointing. I realized though, that I had a ball despite the slow action the fish were providing. We did get a chance to sit around a campfire, smoke cigars, and have a few tasty beverages as well as cook over an open campfire for every meal.
A few weeks ago Mrs. gonelong, myself, and little gonelong were pontooning around Indian Lake. I noticed quite a few people Saugeye fishing so I tossed a pole in the boat for our next trip aound the lake. We ended up catching 6 keepers in about an hour the next trip out, would have been more but I didn't even have a net with me and we lost a few at the boat. The Mrs. and little gonelong were happy to reel in a few.
Last week I was at Ft. Loramie bass fishing. I had 3 bass hooked and failed to land any of them, very disappointing. My neighbor began flippin' and caught his first Bass ever using that technique. I think I have a convert.
We are off to Indian Lake to do a bit of fishing this weekend. We'll probably just fish for catfish and bluegills as I'd like to give little gonelong a chance to catch a few fish.
Hope you are able to get a line wet and enjoy a morning, afternoon, or evening out.
