On one of the first casts there, felt the line moving in a funny manner and set the hook. This one went about 1 1/2 lbs. Poor Son 2 was asked to take a picture.
Two casts later, he had to take another one! Again - a 1 1/2 pounder from the same spot. After turning it loose, I moved down the bank. A couple of casts into that spot I set the hook on a good tap. However (insert lesson learned here), the line snapped above the jig. I had noticed an odd spot in the line minutes before and thought - I should re-tie above that. Thus, the lesson learned. Based on the tap and pull when I set the hook, it was a good fish.
The rest of the day was uneventful as we explored other areas of the lake. Uneventful, except for the smirks and rolling eyes of Son 2 when I kept thanking him for taking me fishing!
