It finally quit raining here so I headed out about 8:30 yesterday morning. The fish were still asleep till around 10:00 or so. I caught 6 or 8 small bass (10" or so) bookended by these two guys:
This fella was around 19-1/2", which according to my handy-dandy conversion chart, would make him around 3 lbs.
The last fish of the day:
This guy was a little over 26-1/4" which the chart says puts him well over 8lbs. Cats are not my favorite catch; they fight OK and put a good bend in the rod, but they mosly just want to go deep, and I like to see what's fighting me once in a while. A jump or two doesn't hurt either! But I guess prairie flyfishers can't be too choosey!
