Little bit of fishing
Fished for a couple hours on the east side after work today. Went 0 for 3 on fish. All the fish were about 7-8 pounds and remained hooked for quite some time before giving me the slip. By the third fish, my forearm burned from the first two fights. I encountered the same problem in september last season as well, not sure if it is poor luck or out of practice but I couldn't land a fish to save my life today. All three were hooked on a pink sucker spawn, not the light pink but more of a magenta. It seems that the recent rain has spread fish over a pretty good distance on the east side. I will be sure to do more searching of the streams on my days off next week.
