Default Backup Plan (pics)

I had a trip planned for the weekend so we took off on friday evening to the lake to fish some tailwater.i was really ready for the break.Didn't fish on friday went to see The Dark Knight Rises i really liked it.Well it rained sometime after midnight and when i got to the river to fish it was muddy so no fishing. We went back to the camper at the lake done a little shopping and watched it rain some more.It quit around 4 that evening so i got my rod waded out in the lake with a foam grasshopper and cast to some rising fish.

Looks like great fishing! Makes me wish I had more time to get out to the western part of the state.

If sunfish didn't exist, we'd have to invent them. They've saved so many days for me that would otherwise have been fishless. Their fight far outweighs their size, and you have to respect that.

Looks like some good fishing, congrats. I don't know either, but this little glutton sure has a mouthful.
