"Get Hooked on New York"

Froggin of Forge Details
Name:Froggin of Forge
Created By:thelucky
Details:Haven't fished Forge Pond since high school. Back then it was one of my favorite lakes. Got on the water at 8 and headed to my old fishing spot, the grass flats right off the creek channel.

Started to junk fish, until I found they wanted a frog. Missed probably my first 8 strikes, some were my fault by the fish were mostly just swiping at the frog. Started to switch colors on the frog, went from black to green then to white. Once I switched to a white frog with a rattle they really started to inhale it. Caught 6 total, with the largest being 4.5. By 10:30 the wind started wiping and killed the frog bite. Was it suppose to be really windy today?

I wanted to get out of the wind so I decided to go to a cove on the other side of the lake. As I was going over I was eating a sandwich and some how I dropped my frog rod into the lake. As I see my rod sink I threw a buoy on top of it. I thought I could just drag the anchor over it and bring it up, but I left the anchor in the car. So back to the car then back to the spot. After about 30 minutes of rod fishing I finally bought it up. Catching a 4lb was fun today but bringing up your $350 setup from the bottom of the lake was awesome!

Been there done that. I dropped a rod overboard the first time I went kayak fishing. Looked and looked but couldn't find it. Two weeks later I happened across it in about 5 feet of water when the sun hit the gold spool of my Penn reel just right. Needless to say, it was my best catch of the day!
