This past Friday evening we decided to think outside the box and do something we don't normally do. Yes, we were still fishing, but this time we left the boat at home, and put on some dirty old shoes and pants on. Yep, that's right, we hit the river and sat on the bank with our fishing poles leaning up on a stick. With the weather being perfect for the occasion, we brought our worms and chicken liver down to see what would possibly take a bite of our offering. As you can see from the picture, we managed a little bit of a variety, which makes the experience all the better. According to Seth "HollyWood Jones" the bite will only get better for the next few weeks, so I suggest getting a rod, a large weight, a plain hook, some cold ones, and a few logs for a fire, then heading to a nice bank on the river and see what's swimming there. It's kinda nice to just relax and sit in the weeds staring at the pole, instead of busting my butt in the hectic waters that we have around us. Getting back to the basics is extremely enjoyable, and I recommend giving it a try again. Fish On Y'all!
