Well I'll be
« on: September 11, 2017, 09:28:54 PM »
Launched in the mud as the water was so very low.   Fought the wind and found a few fish.  Throwing Beetle Spins and Strike King Mini King Spinner bait, I was having a good evening until....

Three crappie on the stringer.  I get a fourth and as usual, I am holding him with my left hand and untie my stringer with my right hand.  Just as I untied the stringer, something grabbed (with force!) the crappie on my stringer and ripped the stringer out of my hand.   Left holding a crappie and no stringer to put him on.  I can only hope whatever grabbed my dinner got a good meal and didn't choke on my stringer.  Hard lesson to learn and have to invent a better mouse trap for future trips.

Totals:  5 crappie, 2 white perch, 7 small yellow perch, 4 bluegill, and 7 bass with two biggest at 1-5 and 2-3.

Not sure where you were, but sounds like a cat or maybe a bowfin helped himself to the buffet you offered up. Never know when you are on the water!
