Default Looking to get out this week... is it worth it?

I have two golden days away from the wife and kids this week. Do I make the trek to the Kank or should I golf?

It has to be gin clear, weedy, and low as ****. Help me maximize my days..!

Unless you are carrying along a couple of rods to extricate (retract) the sexy golf course pond fish, golfing is never an option. The Kank is waiting to bless you.

What a reply! Your words are crafted like a true angler. Your prose remind me of my brother-in-law who gave it all up and lives on Andros island in the Bahamas and lives his days chasing bones on the flats and tuna offshore.

Can you enlighten me on how the Kank will bless me; specifically?

The sacred communion of smallmouth bass. Cast and you shall receive.

I agree. Fished it not too long ago with a good friend of mine. Destroyed SM on a t-rig crawdad. Best of luck to you
