I thought my basspro net was big, but this one is 34in long, bout same size as the fish :)

 

Whenever I get a really big one on while wading....I always work it over to the bank and beach it or just pick it up in the shallow water. I've lost some nice ones trying to get them in a net.

Buddy I'll never go out at night again without it! Thank you again!  Figure I might get some weird looks with it strapped to my back, but won't ever have to go through that circus again...Lol

I test fit it last night on my vest and got a new magnet for the connector.  It's gonna work out real nice.  Took some 1000 grit to it and tested a small spot and she's going to clean up real nice.  

Using some oil I've used in old gun stocks to get her cleaned up then I'll get it all sealed up and ready to go!

That's a very nice net.  Use it in good health for many years to come!  And then pass it along again.

This is the third "Jigfest" that I have attended. Pretty intimidated on that first trip. Wanted to fish the White for those trout that I had seen throughout this forum. That was a great trip and I began learning how to fish jigs in current, fish from a boat, etc. Got to meet lots of guys that I read all their posts. After the third trip still learning. Got to fish with a consummate guide Duane on this trip. Lots of stories amd lots of smack talk and Duane catching fish from spots that I just ran a bait through. I get a lot of grief for hanging my baits. Even have my name being used as a verb. But as Duane said clench both butt cheeks and cast as close to the bank as possible. If you hang up we'll go get it. He helped me not only by fishing advice but it was his sculpin pattern that got that first Taney brown😀.

I ended up catching a night time brown again using a Duane rainbow scented shallow running baits!

Having been around these guys over the last three years has been a great time. Lots of great guys on this forum. I can never repay these guys for their knowledge, gear (family were impressed on the color coded trout magnets😁), willing to share their time as well to help others to get on fish and help them catch and achieve their goals. I have tried to pay it forward when I can. Going to be harder now that I am in Maryland. 

I have no reason to not continue to be active on this great site that @Phil Lilley has created. Anyone heading out east look me up and we might be able to get you on some fish. Especially if you want to target some of those "other"fish. Also if you ever catch something that you need help with figuring out "WT heck" is this I'll do what I can or ask folks that can help.

It was a good day when I met John Folly.  Godspeed in Maryland.  And you never know who might show up in your neck of the woods.  Me?  You?  Us?  Them?

 

I hope so buddy. I may have the stripers figured out by then. I can catch a bunch of small ones. Don't have the big ones figured out yet.
