Fun Thursday trip

So with the heat showing around 100 I knew the snakehead would play. Loaded the cooler with 20lbs of ice and the wife and I hit the creek. Got to play with new tackle and it took me a while to get the reels dialed in. Many professional over runs happened. Caught a nice LGMouth on a lightly weighted swim fluke. Man that felt good to knock the dust off with a baitcaster again. Saw many snakeheads milling about and had a blowup that pulled the hooks on a zipping ziggy. Needed pliers to bend them back. Missed another three hits. Then this guy hit on light tackle and we had a really good fight. Of coarse it was on a Rico customer rod. Figures. Wife did not catch any but had a few hits.
In total landed one bass and one snakehead. Lost three snakehead and one bass that I just jerked too hard and too soon. Ha..

Re: Fun Thursday trip

Berkley E-Motion rods black and white with micro guides. Bought 4 more and two REVO X 7.4:1 reels and a quantium speed freak spinning reel. Have another speed freak on the way. The black and white on the floor is one of them. Seems I catch the most fish on my old berkley lightning rods with a Rico. Could not pass up the half price deal on the E-Motion rods on Berkley website.

I've been told to just STOP before you hit the button!  Then walk away and think about something else.

It doesn't work for me....
