Of Course you can view this and much more information on my bog!

This Morning Neil And I Arrived about 4:30a.m. Fished the Mouth of Montrose until 5a.m. Afterwards we went to the Park Bait shop where I purchased a Flasher. Then we proceeded to The Horseshoe. Fonsnook was already there and Clifford had Landed One Brown Trout. We fished until 7:30a.m. Most fish Caught today Were Apparently Snagged some how or another as was mine, Clifford Snagging his on top of it's head with a Jr. Thunder stick And I snagging mine on the Tail with a Light Orange Spoon. I Tried Throwing it back But It Was Floating and Didn't Look Like it would be revived so we Re-netted it and I brought it home and Gave it to my Neighbors (better then a Waste). The Fish Not being able to swim away was entirely my fault on in-proper handling, One I didn't keep it low to the Ground So when it Had Wiggled away it fell Hard. Two Because Of the Fish wiggling so Much the Pictures Took A little Longer then usual. I'm Kind of down on the fact I told my self; Next fish I caught was released whether it is a Silver king or a Trophy. Well Hopefully This Evening at Waukegan I get hooked up with a King, Looking forward to seeing everyone there. Almost forgot to mention, chgoEnforcer (Chuck) Was Fishing there today, Maybe he'd Like to Share His Outing When he Gets time Nice Meeting you looking forward to the Outing
