Back home - Rich got his lucky fishin' hat and we headed out .......... Not a great day - but not too bad either. We (Rich) caught six fish/four keepers.
First catch - from the looks of that pole should be a big one! No - but it was 2 decent sized Crappie. Yes - we got a picture this time. I've done this twice already - but he managed to bring in two fish on the one pole! He rigs them with a split shot and two hooks. The second catch was a real nice Shell cracker. Caught these on the worms.
Then he got a real nice fish on the line, and we knew it was a bass once it surfaced. They always jump! As he was reeling it in - it looked like he had a bite on his second pole, so I grabbed that one. We soon realized that we were both reeling in the same fish . The lines got caught on the anchor. Luck we did not loose the fish - but it was right there when I pulled up the anchor. It was about 15 1/2 inches.
