Dreary Gray Day, but caught some fish

Post by Clark » Fri Mar 04, 2016 8:23 pm

I have had a really bad cough and cold for six weeks, and have not done much of anything fun, but today I got back out on the water. It was a gray chilly day, but I caught some fish and had a great time. And I didn't even have to grow a lucky beard. :lol: The trout was caught on a Slayer paddletail, and the reds were caught on mullet chunks.

Good to see you back out there. It was breezy today. Not so sure about your choice of pants!

Great to see another good post by you Clark!!

Since you said you had a cold for the last 6 weeks, and I have nursed one from North Carolina for the past 4 weeks, I ALSO WONDERED ABOUT THE SHORTS AND NO RAINPROOF CLOTHING!! :scratch:

Whatever, you know better than us how you feel and what to wear....LOL!!
Congrats on the GREAT RESULTS my friend......JohnYaksJax

Nice fish for feeling crappy, I was in a jacket all day but also shorts like you Clark. That respiratory infection going around is nasty. A lot of folks have had it for weeks. Hopefully some of the sun this week will burn it out of you.

Thanks guys. The weather was chillier than I thought it was going to be, but it was not too bad. I wore my boots and thick wool socks. I had a warm windbreaker that I put on after cooling down from paddling and throwing the cast net. I also tried to fish areas that were "out of the wind". And, although I am tired of the cough and cold, when I compare it to the health issues that some people deal with, my cough is really only an inconvenience.

Nice catches, Clark. Have you seen any of your old tags lately?
