ALL FISH ARE NETTED, HOOK TAKEN OUT AND PLACED INTO THE KEEP NET DIRECTLY OUT OF THE NET WITH NO HUMAN CONTACT, THEY THEN ARE DISPLAYED FOR A QUICK PICTURE AND RELEASED SUCCESSFULLY AND UNHARMED !

I fished Briefly Thursday and Today. My outing yesterday left me quite Confused, As I had multiple hits but only two fish landed. So I came home and Experimented with my tackle and stayed up almost till 1 A.m. trying to figure this out. I Think I finally figured out the problem and looked forward to trying it out during today's outing. Making New Preparation baits (strawberry, Cherry, and more Peanut butter) I was excited to get out. Before Leaving the spot yesterday I baited and Expected the bigger fish to push the smaller ones out as much as I threw in. 10/19 I had so many bites with only two fish to show for my efforts, I was not only disgusted but was really frustrated with myself. I don't get down and out when not catching fish but When I don't catch them consistently it bothers me and I go through dramatic measures to improve. Fishing for me is a passion and obsession and If I don't consistently perform I get stressed and I do all that I can to get better, This is what motivated me since I was little. 10/20 Today I was fishing a hair rig with 6lb test Lighter line. The bigger fish did move the smaller ones out as I had hoped and Fishing was fun, Fish were there and Feeding heavily I missed a few on the hook sets but did end up landing 6 fish total. I caught 3 on peanut butter and 3 on Straw berry flavored dough bait. The peanut butter gave me the bigger fish though. the Last fish I caught and the one displayed in the picture is the First fish EVER in my life to have got me tired in a fight, This fish made so many runs i couldn't even hold the rod with my right hand any more.. I was holding on for dear life, The Greatest Fight I've ever had with a Fish for sure !! and a blast to successfully get him in.

Will Probably not Fish tomorrows Trout opener, As I have focused somewhere else... Might hit it Sunday
