. ALL SPECIES RELEASED SUCCESFULLY !! .

ON THIS VERY, VERY CHILLY MORNING I DECIDED LAST NIGHT TO HIT SOME COLD WATER CARP.... BUT AS THE GIRLFRIED INSISTED ON GOING I CHANGED MY MIND TO HIT SOME PANFISH. WE ARRIVED AT THE RIVER AROUND 8:00AM AND FISHED UNTILL 10:00AM AS SARA, MY BROTHER AND I BRAVED THE ELEMENTS THERE WERE FEW FISH CAUGHT.
I TOKK ABOUT 10-15 MINUTES LOCATING THE FISH AND AT WHAT DEPTHS ETC. THEN TOOK A LITTLE WHILE TO TEACH SARA THE BASICS SHE LEARNED VERY QUICK AND WAS JIGGING HERSELF. SHE CAUGHT HER FIRST FISH A BLUEGILL ON A PINK/WHITE RATSO ICE FISHING JIG WITH A SMALL PIECE OF PORK PLASTIC ATTACHED TO THE BACK. THEN THEY SLOWED ALITTLE. MY BROTHER JAMES TRYING HIS LUCK FOR CARP (EURO STYLE WHICH WE ARE GETTING INTO) HAD ONE BUT PULLED THE HOOK. I ENDED THE MORNING WITH 9 BLUEGILL THE BITE WAS REALLY LITE AND FISH VERY TIGHT TO STRUCTURE AFTER THAT VERY GOOD DROP IN TEMPERATURE THE LAST 2 DAYS.

Nice vest, but more important Nice Couple! it's great to see a young couple out there doing something other than getting into trouble! i'd say she's a keeper especially for braving the elements! does she have a single aunty, maybe it runs in the family, good genes are hard to find :lol:
