What a Father's Day! Five casts. Five fish. All over five pounds. It was incredible. Then there was that 18 lb. blue cat that hit my spoon. I really thought I had caught the big one.
We put in at Paynetown as most folks were leaving; late afternoon. It was too hot to fish so we swam until the sun sank to about the seven p.m. location, then fished. By eight they were biting regularly. I'm not sure how many we caught, maybe a dozen, but I was disappointed with the size. Most were in the 5-7 lb. size and none were larger. Of course, it's hard to convince a five pound wiper that it weighs only five pounds, but still, it would have been nice to tackle one of the bigger guys.
We left a little before sundown, tired and happy. The only thing that would have made it better is if my two boys had been able to join me. Hope all who celebrated Father's Day had a good one.
