Agreed. Just bought a golf membership and threw all my gear away. #blasphemy

More positive news, just got a call from a nice lady from Soldiers Grove who said she had my card after finding it at the Kwik Trip in Viroqua. I had already canceled it, but nice to hear from such an honest person.

Got in a few hours on Saturday on a Waupacka county stream. I caught 8 Brookies in 2 hours. About average for that stream. Found a leak in my waders.

I was down in Lake Geneva for the weekend to visit the parents and I was lucky enough to sneak away Sunday morning for some fishing.

Gurth lives down in the Madison area so I bugged him for a spot and he didn't disappoint. I seriously owe him big time as he put me in a great spot with some great fish... and brookies. Which I've never caught before Blink

There wasn't a person there and I had an awesome time. Thanks Gurth!!!

Had to go to Janesville for a high school sporting event tonight and stopped along the way to scout a stream that's between here and there. Wanted to see it it looked worth a trip to.

Checked out a spot right in a town and pulled this solid 14 incher out.

5 minutes. 4 casts. 1 trout.

Perfect. BigGrin


Think I might hit that stream this weekend.

A nice Brookie and a 18" Brown? That's a pretty good day in my book. Well done!

I pretty much got owned by stillwater brookies all weekend. And people say they're stupid fish...I have a hard time agreeing with that when they're turning down size 20 midges and size 16 scuds.Unsure
