8-26-10

Slamming the slop this morning.....Weedy, nasty, slime filled, lilly pad infested, grassy, chunky, clumped up algae filled water....The kind of lake they make horror movies out of....Chasing after pickerel....If you have never experienced the excitement of watching a fish create a wake through the water chasing your fly....Then ravenously exploding the water around it....Shaking his head and then running.....The occasional jump and dive down to the weeds....Then you are missing out on some of the best top water action in your backyard....Chain pickerel are definetly an underrated game fish...Don't under estimate....I got bit off today four times, through 50 lb braid as a tippet...Big ass fish....Don't use your best flies as they will be torn up, shredded or sacrificed to the gods of fish with teeth....Good times....

  4. Blue bird skies, wind out of the east--fish bite the least--leaves turning backward with the breeze, all are signs for me to stay off the water--do I follow the signs?????? not today or anyday, we all like to be punished.
