    Even better. Practice picking line up off the water and casting. It's different than on Dry land

    I'd try and catch fish. Makes it more fun

    Another option is just tie a little bit of yarn on the end. That way he can see where it ends up.

    Wife took the kids to play with horses for the afternoon, so I ran to the river. Had another big one get off when either my tippet broke or my knot failed :tebow:. Also spent an hour casting to multiple rising fish with no success.

    I don't expect to ever see it, but the video I watched on it made it still seem like a good idea as it would mean every turn on your reel will pull in a little more line with space already filled in behind it.

    Also I bought it as a combo package thing at bass pro since I was only setting up one rod and it came with backing, leader, and line. Maybe a rookie move, but I'm a rookie.

    You've got tons of options at $150

    Check out star rods. Aerial is half that price. Stellar is going to be close to $150

    Shimano clarus is my favorite rod I have, but they don't make the same ones they did

    TexTide04 Along the coach roads I did ride

    Dad went out in Padre 5 days after. Came up upon a few huge schools that included 5+ 23” trout. These trout tried to find deep water to go bed down in mud and still didn’t make it. Being found belly up with mud in gills.

    Not great.

    Biggest was 14 in / 1.7lbs.
    All on minnows.
    Trolled jigs and minnows for a few hours with nothing. Finally found some good cover in 10-15 ft of water and had some luck.

    I just have a low end packable. It has done the job when needed. Just off of name brand, I would buy Frogg Toggs without hesitation. Especially at the cost. They carry some lines at Walmart if you wanted to get a feel of it.

    What kind of rain are out talking about fishing in?

    How do you spell limit? The best crappie day I've ever had. Caught ~60. Went by myself today.

    Limit is 30fish - 10". Only downside is none are mooses.

    Alright, I'm done for a day or three. Turkey season opens next weekend. Need to get ready for that.

    13 more this afternoon. Gave them to my buddy because I didn't want to clean them. (Will still eat them).
