        This just proves you can con anyone into going fishing with you. @WoundedOne  drew the short straw and /I did not have to go alone today :) . I told him no guarantees and we would just have to try and see what we could find. The weatherman lied and it was more wind than called for. It was 32 when we launched and when we pilled out about one it had risen to 51. Water temp had cooled to 59 pushing 60. Tried where Mrs. BilletHead and I had found fish Wednesday. Pretty slow there and small fish so we went exploring. Found the whites up river about a mile. Got a bunch there but wind sucked . Moved back downstream to a clay/rock bank and it was on. Numerous doubles. I caught my fish on Clousers pink over white and chartreuse over orange. Sink tip and full floating line. Mike threw zig Jigs and I think his best color was white. We will see if he can add to this. I clicked 50 fish and I know Mike put a whipping on them too. thumbnail_0412191236.jpg

We caught a mix of whites, crappie and hybrids. Between the two of us 11 hybrids. If the meat guys would cull and pitch these hybrids back that fishery in a few years will get crazy.

I said hey what are you doing man. He says it looks like that thing is coming right at me. I said you should of been with Pat and I Wednesday. He said I close my eyes when you cast. I said you have safety glasses on you are safe. Later I find out he has only one good eye! Ok Next time he has to wear a full face shield with helmet. I missed him with every cast. He is very fortunate :) ,

It was a great day fishing together. The capt can put a whooping on them fish. I used the duck and cover method a few times as i looked out at the fly line being lifted off the water heading my way. As Marty says are you ducking? Of course i am.  There was a 30-45 min stretch where i could not get a bite as i watch Marty every few cast set the hook. There was a couple of strange cats in a boat that would envade on us (i am talking withing a rods length away). They would drive right between us and bank. Marty and i kepped a good eye on them as they took over another guys spot that where doing pretty well. We moved to a new location and it was fish on till the magic 50. I broke off a good one that was most likely a hybrid beast!!!  About halfway thru the Crappie limit we both kinda had the same thought. Why are we not kepping any? Not sure why but i know i had a great time just C&R. Told the wife about the day and she asked if i kept any i told her Marty wouldnt give me any..LOL His wife wanted them.. I did not take too many pics that day just got caught up in the moment of fishing and conversating with a great guy and friend.

I do this homemade "roundhouse double-haul" cast with Clousers.  You're fairly safe as long as you stay on the left side of me. 😏

Well i was on the right side. Manged to stay safe this trip..

Nice job you two!  Looks like you guys had a great time.  Good job dodging those flies Mike!
