    Hey fellow fishermans. I actually have something to contribute to this thread.

    Went out fishing in my almost new kayak today.
    Didn't catch anything but had a good time on the lake.
    I got too good a deal on this Walmart Kayak (Lifetime) from my neighbor.
    He had just bought it this summer, but decided he wanted a sit on top for fishing so he sold me this one for cheap.($50)
    It ain't great for fishing out of, but I can back troll for trout no problem.(haven't caught any trout yet in three attempts)


    I have also been fishing the pond up in the woods where I hike and catching Smallmouth Bass and Crappie.




    I was using this telescoping pole with a Zebco Micro 33 until I broke it the other day trying to horse a lure off a snag.
    I know better than to pull on the rod, but I had a brain fart and reefed on it and snap it went.
    It sure was fun catching pan fish on that little setup.
    Luckily I have a couple of spares, but I loved the telescoping pole because it fit in my pack leaving my hands free for the trekking poles.
    Oh well, I have sewn a tie off patch onto my pack and can pack one of my 2 piece poles on the outside now.
    Going back to the pond tomorrow.......

    Good to see you posting again @mykel m .. and getting out. It's been unusually warm and dry here the past couple of months. I haven't gotten to fish as much as I normally do. I picked up a 1 wt fly rod recently which I've taken to the local lake a few times to get a feel for. Caught mostly sunfish and a few small bass but on that rod they were a blast.
