Skunked no More

I recently had a string of bad luck at Evans Lake.

Some discount my characterization as poor technique and others blame it on the weather but let's just say that I got skunked twice in a row. I tried everything in the tackle box from the BGW to the Wild Eyed Swim Shad but nothing produced so much as a tickle.

I did get impatient on the last cast and pulled the BGW away from a would-be strike.

Oh well - Sunshine has returned to the lake(or make that Sunset to be precise).

Here's a little guy I caught on July 4th.

We have been in the "Rainy Season" for the past week.
The water level is coming up slowly in the lake.

This is a previously tagged fish.
Note the iritated spot on the mouth.
I have stopped the tagging program for now
until I can find a better way to tag them.

Big Baby
This beauty took a BGW just at sundown and gave me a good fight.

Take me to the River....
