I finished cutting the grass and figured I would head down to a local boat ramp with the fly rod and try out my new sinking tip and the green/white Deep Clouser that I tied yesterday.
Wow, what a swirling
mass of mayhem that combination was! It took a few minutes and a Belgian cast to get things
working somewhat. Introducing a double haul helped even more.
I didn't catch any fish on the fly, but I did have a couple of nibbles on the
Clouser. That is a huge milestone because I never catch anything at
this ramp. I guess my luck was pretty good this evening because I put
the fly rod up and pulled out the spinning gear and managed to land this
bluegill on a Beetle Spin.
This is the largest fish I have ever caught
at this ramp. It's not fishy, but it is close.
