If somebody had told me that this weekend would turn out the way it did, I would have stayed home. After having to cancel on my fishing buddies on a bass fishing trip on Friday, we set up an impromptu trip to the same spot on Saturday afternoon.

Lalo drew first blood with a River to Sea minnow. But that was all the bites he would have on that minnow. A bit later Charles got into another one with a minnow imitation. Then all went silent for them and my turn came. I went through a bunch of different lures before trying a green and silver cast master that I had. I ended up catching three small before it got too dark to fish. Charles caught one more and then we went home.

This spot belongs to Alex and Lalo and is considered sacred to them. They have pictures of HUGE stripers, bass, and catfish that they catch at this spot so all of us were excited for the potential. We went to two different spots. At the first one Rafael nailed four small cats before any of us had even set up our poles. Alex ended up getting into one small striper and I caught my first cat before busting out my fly rod and showing Rafael a little bit about fly casting. I purchased some bass bugs and was tossing them out but there were no takers.

The numbers ended up as follows:
And the winner with a combined total of 9 fish: ME!
My prize: a hook in the F*%$#ing thumb!
|And he's okay!|
In the comments, feel free to share stories of times when you hooked yourselves!
Total fish count: 3 Largemouth bass + 1 Carp + 8 catfish = 12 fish
