Thought I'd test out the new board with this little report.

Fortunately the weatherman was wrong about the wind and when it was dead calm this morning, I hit the lower sky near Monroe. I know most of the brats are up near reiter but I don't like fishing in combat zones and thought I'd try to intercept one or two closer to home.

Really nice morning and I had a long drift all to myself. Fished about 3 hours and released a not-so-dark chum (were they late this year on the sky?).

Finally nailed this bright little hen while bouncing corky and eggs. I wouldn't normally post about a 7 lb brat but thought some of you might like to see that you can catch 'm well below the terminal areas.



She gave me nice batch of eggs to boot.

Nice job. I agree getting away and finding your own hole and covering water is a lot of fun. Great job. Tup:

Way to go. And thanx for the report. I don't like combat fishing either. I may catch a few less fish than others, but I enjoy my time alone when I can. Or at least not elbow to elbow.

Thanks guys.

Hey gonefishin,
You said "I may catch a few less fish than others, but I enjoy my time alone when I can."

Same here. I'd rather catch one while I'm alone than catch 3 or 4 while worrying that someone will low hole me or nab my spot while I go take a leak.
