Pickerel and Twice Caught Smallmouth
Remember that face above, it's going to show itself again later.
I fished the backwaters of the lake again today. The change towards cooler weather turns the pickerel bite on BIG TIME, and I realized this as soon as the first one I saw nailed my streamer four times. Of course I missed him, and then I noticed that most of the fish were interested in the fly but had trouble pulling the trigger. I switched to a mouse and a monster turned it and my tipper into powder. I believe it was the same one I lost earlier last week. I'll get that big sucker sometime soon.
The gorgeous little beast bellow crumpled a black Crystal Sex Dungeon three times, finally got hooked and flew all over the place. Missile!
And the last fish of the day was also the first.... no kidding, it's the exact same one. That's the first time I have landed the same fish twice in one day.
