Which brings me to the title of this post. Back on Tuesday January 25th, I noted that I set a new personal best with the 5lb-2oz Cuttbow. Well, today I landed this one that was 7 lbs even. I'm not sure why, but when I landed it, it was already bleeding. So, even though it was a personal best that I would have preferred to release, I put it on the stringer. This one will be hard to beat. Oh, caught it on a little white crappie grub jig. You just never know.
The third thing today, I mentioned about the cold. Well, when I left home, it was 29 degrees. I figured, way too cold to put in the float tube. Little did I know, that when I got to the lake, it was around 40. By 10:30 or so, it was t-shirt weather. Would have been a great day for launching the Float Tube Cumberland. But then again, I would not have caught the "big" one.
To end the day, I managed one more of the little 10 inchers on the same Kastmaster I caught the first one on, minus all the blood from my finger. I figured that Bob might have a freezer full with all the big ones I've given him recently and since he wasn't home, I caught my neighbor Roy and gave him the three fish.
On the way home, I found the ideal place to fish. Check out California Dreaming to see where.
Till next time.
