I sneaked for 20 minutes this morning, prior to the family scheduled activities as we were staying at a friends house in SF.

I left a note that I was getting everyone's favorite scones, but I ran down to a spot that looked very fishable!

As soon as I got there lighning started and thunder followed at 15 ticks; a slight drizzle gently wet my uncombed hair.

The pressure was now upon me, as my streak was going to end (7 days in a row hooking a fish with stripes).

First Cast, nothing, I was now counting only 10 ticks between lighting and thunder.

Then on the side of my right eye I see a tail splashing in the water. A large swirl was by that spot so I knew I had to be careful to avoid the big hidden boulder.

I casted just ahead of the swirl and upcurrent. I started to shake & roll the stinky worms, while I was counting only 5-6 ticks now.

At that point I felt a gentle tap, then a slight pull, I responded with a very short gentle pull, and then the fish slammed the gulp. I had a fish on, and yes, it had stripes. I took a quick pic for the official record book and I ran back.

Of course the scoan place was close, but everyone was praising my effort to get fresh scoans in the rain.


PS: I hope I did not offend anyone by adding some Drama/Humor to the report.

You said - PS: I hope I did not offend anyone by adding some Drama/Humor to the report.

The question is, do you like to fish, do you like to write and who is your target audience.

Are you apologizing for being educated?

You can't please everyone so ...

If you do not measure your fish, the state will provide a man with a gun to do it for you.
