|Details:||Today was a day that I wanted to get out and make the most of my weekend. Never too sure about when or how long I'll be able to fish and if I can squeeze in even an half hour to an hour, I'm at least somewhat satisfied.
So I start out at nine or so at the local bait shop, pick up some shiners and I'm off to Copicut. It was a bit cloudy today but not too too cold, probably mid to low fifties, not too much wind either. So I cruise over to Copicut with my tunes going in the truck happy as can be, knowing I'll be casting out a few lines soon. When I get there I set up my chair, bait bucket, tackle box and I've got three poles going. My main pole was the one I had my shiner on, 6' medium heavy, with a Browning Midas Spincaster, with 10lb Fire Line, the other two are light spinning reels with 6lb test, Vapor Vanish on one and Stren on the other.
With my shiner out swimming around doing his job, I cast around the periphery with a dark spinnerbait, interchanging with a devil's horse. The other light pole had my brush hog on it . I used this to cause some trouble around my bait fish, hoping to stir up some pickerel action. Sure Enough, Boom, not a half hour into it and I get a nice strike on my bobber, drop my light reel, run to my main pole, and land a sweet Pickerel. Good Size and Beautiful. My second on the year, surpassing my goal of catching at least one. I didn't have too much more time to hang out in heaven, so I put the prize back into the water and put some more bait on the hook. Took several more casts with my other poles and about a half hour later had to go pick up my little daughter. Great day though gotta say.
