today I had my wife drop me off at a small creek by my house so that I could go do some exploring. it turned out to be just what I needed. I've been in a semi funk and haven't caught any fish all season. that changed today. the walk in proved that spring is in full swing around here.

5 months with no fish? I don't know how you guys manage to stay sane.

Nice way to get back into things.

That's a good wife who'll understand the need to get rid o' the funk... Pig of a carp.

That carp was a tank! Well done dude, I did the same thing this weekend with way less luck on the fish part. Feels good.

That's a very cool looking creek - with excellent fish. I cannot tell one rust belt state from another on the map without the legend, but I'd be there every day. :cool
