Slow day fishing from my kayak, had my back to the lake and was fishing the shore.. I heard a splash behind me, when I turned I saw the circles growing and I knew it was a fish. I quickly switched to a white worm with blue and silver flake... Four casts later he was on! I had to let it sink to the bottom and let it be totally still for him to strike. Thats just the way he likes it.
Wasn't long before I had him in the fishgrip, and in my hands.
Gotta love the first fish of the year. Get the skunk off and the fish on!
