Sunday before church

Recommended Posts

I am really enjoying my 4 piece travel pole, it is a Basspro 6'6" medium fast, I paired it with a Lews 200 series reel. It brakes down to something under 24".

Anyway..after taking my wife out to breakfast, I decided to stop by Jones creek to see if I could feed the fish. 

I caught a couple small bass then this guy, I thought this fish was just beautiful !.

It was a nice way to start a Sunday, then it was off to sunday school and worship.

I think that might be a dollar sunfish.  Different species from the usual longears!

It's fins reminded me of the color of pickled beets 😁my cell phone camera did not do it justice !

Pretty little guy for sure. Pfluegers have been great value for the money to me. I’m all about Lew’s Bait casters , nut I think I’m done with their spinning reels. I had one good one and then 3 lemons.

My son bought a Pflueger this time, I have several of the Lews spinning reels of different price points, it seems like the small reverse thread nut below the spool wants to back off on a couple models, it is irritating to fumble with while on the water. I am going to try a small drop of lock tight.

I guess I am going to have to grow up and learn to run a casting reel.😁 on my spinners i get good distance and excellent feel with braid and a leader, i just have found not found the same sensitivity with a bait caster. I can't make myself drop a bunch of money on a combo though.
