Your best fishing day ever..
At first she was nervous just being in a yak, then about moving around in the yak.
We now spend much time fishing in our kayaks. We just load them up and take off. We need more vacation time.
Ice fishing going through 6 dozen minnows in just a few hours, 50+ flags.
Too many days to count. Good topic!
I had a few years where I was catching 50-100 wipers a day (actually in about 4 hours).....ridiculous, every cast from the time I'd get there till I had to leave. I seriously am surprised my hands and thumbs recovered without major scarring. Biggest in the 12# range.
My best musky day was 12 landed. I recall more than once having multiple musky follow on the same cast.
Chinook fishing...heck, the rod's bend 99% of the time on good days...I think around 100 was my best day...all bobber fishing.
Bass, well, too many spectacular days...When I talk about good days bass fishing, people that haven't fished with me just think I'm lying....which is simply amusing, but I rarely talk about days like that with people I don't fish with. I'll give one example:
A few springs ago I had a friend who talked me into a tournament on Wind lake...just prior, he called to tell me the GF was in labor and he couldn't fish...so I called my fishing buddy (fishboy35) and had him meet me at the launch.
It was a miserable spring evening, winds ripping over 30MPH, rain and impending storms. If that wasn't enough, the temps had dropped nearly 30 degrees from the previous day. Really not even a fun day to be on a boat.
First we hit a point, catching 3 quick pike when I say...dude, you ain't gonna like this, but we need to head to the back of the main flat and finesse fish...the big girls gotta be there. We get there, basically in the middle of the lake, wind and waves wreaking havoc. About the 3rd cast I catch a 5lber. Then Vince catches a 5....because of the winds we actually lost another 5 giants that we just couldn't get a hook into...in about 25 minutes we had 3 in the 5lb range in the box.
Then a big storm moved in and I say, lets back off, throw some lipless and fill this limit....5 minutes later and before the bad weather hit we were done and back at the bar...waiting 2.5 hours for the weigh in....yeah, we fished less than an hour.
Weigh ins came and the smell of skunk was in the air....only 3 boats brought in a single fish....until we weighed in 2lb was big bass. We had over 18lb and 3 giants...people were quite salty with us, subtly implying we had somehow cheated...lol...just because we won by over 16lb and barely fished? Ahhhh, good times indeed.
