I have been slipping out of the house and hitting the pond. I have been having a ball catching some big bull Brim 3/4 to 1 pound each. On an ultra lite spinning outfit they are a real fight. I was using a strike king bitsy minnow and lost it to a big hungry bass so I had to make a trip to Wal-Mart for a re supply. I had to make a trip to the house to change clothes after I fell backwards out of the canoe and lost my rod which I managed to recover. One hell of a day. I laughted all the way home and when I told my wife she said I had to take one of the boys to watch over me when I went fishing. I just laughted at her and went back fishing alone. In all 15 big brim and five bass for the day.
