I hit the river before work this morning, I havenít been out in several days, sick with a summer head cold or the Rona.
Humid, cloudy and scattered showers were great conditions.

The water was extremely low so I waded out to the channel edge and worked upstream.
Caught 3 decent smallies for my efforts on a whopper plopper 90, plus a small schoolie striper. Top water blow ups just never get old!

I switched up to a green pumpkin ned rig on the way back and bounced it down in the current.
This produced 7 rat smallies, but nothing over 12Ē.
On the way out I took a digger on a slippery rock and smashed my knee into it, so I decided to call it before it stiffened up.
Iím fine, just sore.

Holy cow Jon. That's a long way to fall. Be like me falling off a step ladder. LOL Got some fish anyway.

If there are fish to catch. I'll be there to my end.

Good way to get some early action, that Striper must have been fun.

Looks like a cormorant or a heron got that first one a couple years ago . Amazing how they heal up .

.

"Politically correct" was initially coined by Leon Trotsky to refer favorably to those whose views remained in sync with the ever-shifting Bolshevik Party line. This was important, as "not PC" people risked prison or death.

Super outing except for the fall. You are using a walking staff, right? Good sized fish for a river, even one the size
of the Ct. River.

Yes I always have my wading staff with me Buck. This rock was a snot covered flat top that put me down. It was only 2 feet deep so not terrible, but the knee doesnít like me too well tonight. biggrin

Jon,

Nice trip. Great to see a striper still hanging around. Catching it on a whopper plopper had to be great. Snot covered rocks stink on ice.
Glad you are OK.
