    Default Smallmouth

    I just got back from Big Lake In Grand Lake Streams Maine & what a trip. I slow trolled with small yellow poppers & had a blast. Fishing was so good I even took a few afternoons off from fishing to take some hikes & bond with the missus (who doesn't fish). For the fish in deeper water I used either a cone head muddler, woolly bugger or a worm fly. The lake isn't that deep & there are a lot of fairly shallow areas so sink tip line worked fine.
    I went up to the Dam pool one evening & picked up 2 salmon on a Barnes Special. There were a lot of caddis around & I figured to wait till just after dark to see if there was any dry fly work, Then the bats came out. Holy s*@t there must have been a hundred of them & after them picking up my fly & hitting my line a few times, & flitting around my face I left the river & the caddis to them.
    When I got back home the letter from Chrysler about my Jeep Patriot burning was waiting for me. Chrysler denied any responsibility & would not even give me a copy of their investigators report & the agent was rude & arrogant. At least my insurance comp.totaled the car & paid off the lease so I'm only out the money I put down to keep the payments where my daughter could afford them. I am getting a lawyer to try & settle that. I'm selling my other jeep & will never step foot in a Chrysler showroom again. What a way to end a great vacaton.

    Sounds like a great trip.
    Bummer on the Jeep...

    To me, the journey of learning is almost more fun than arriving at the destination of knowing.

    Sorry to hear about the jeep. I'm glad to hear the fishing was great.

    I sent you a PM on the jeep.

    Good luck!
