Default 03/11/20 FRappies

I got out 3 days ago, but only gave myself 20 minutes to fish until darkness. I hooked 2 whopper FRoppers and lost them both. One was a flop off and the other I lost trying to lip it boatside. Both were big strong fish. It rained that night and the next day and now the Fox jumped up about 60% flow-wise. Clarity went down about 50% from the rain.

It was nice to get out today away from all the bad news on the TV and radio. I picked a quiet spot, not a human in sight, not even myself. Typical fishing tactics--slow water next to fast water. Picked a spot with some downed trees also. FRappies were scattered, but there. First came this beat up scrapper.




Then a bigger and prettier guy

Only one hit in the darkness





Such pretty fish. They were exceptionally well-behaved for the photographs. As much as my face itched, I refrained from touching it in case any of these guys were carrying CROPVID-19.

Hey KP!

Fox, main river, not any backwater or anything like that.

Mr Gadget,


I forgot about the forums and figured they were dead until I got an email this with from the site. Facebook sure has killed all the boards.

Facebook is an addiction. Mark "El Chappo" Zuckerberg is the kingpin. I don't understand why otherwise conservative individuals would support a self serving, guilt tripping, democrat liberal.
