You all know that I write a weekly column for the local newspaper. Since it's published on Friday, I thought I'd just copy it and post it out here on Saturday, sans the Friday on Saturday. A lot of the article is stuff you've already read, but since not many post on the weekends, I thought you might just need something to read and I try to make it different enough to keep it interesting.
That said, I'll start tomorrow, but I would appreciate your honest feedback. I'm a big boy and can take it if you tell me that I shouldn't post this
On to today.................
Left the house at 0715 and after a coffee stop, hit Bear River Reservoir at 0800. Put out two lines of rainbow Power Bait and sat my butt on a rock awaiting the first bite. Being one of those with a boney butt (probably more than you wanted to know), I put a chair pad between my butt and the rock although I have to admit it didn't help much. Fifteen minutes later I was experiencing a case of numbbutt in the worst way.
I spent the first hour trying to keep the little buggers that would hit the line twice and then be gone along with the bait, to stay on the hook. Even holding the rod I couldn't manage to snag one. Bear River picture below. It was a morning of "tap", "tap" and then put on more bait.

Got to Silver Lake at 0930 and put out two lines with rainbow Power Bait. Parked in my red camping chair on top of a rock formation.
|Throne for the day.|
