Today was fun. I was fishing for perch and I kept getting dinks with nothing over 8 inches...using everything that I could. I finally got tired and switched over to this new perch jig that I got last week. Within two minutes, I had a HUGE hit...COHO. So I had my ultralight with 4lb. test, a perch jig, AND NO NET. I figured that I wouldn't need one fishing for perch. Someone just last week told me that I should always bring one when perch fishing because the bigger fish often go for minnows and other perch bait. Anyways, so I got this thing on and I'm screaming for a net...NO ONE had one. I was so careful with my drag and I finally got it in. It was a nice fish...about 6 pounds. My friend went to go grab it and when he did it started shaking its head and it quickly snapped the line (with my jig). At least I caught one and had fun and now I will ALWAYS have a net with me.
