    Hey TD, you got 'em out once, you can do it again. I'd rather have the opportunity, it'll make a memory too. Great challenge, great result, nice fish.

    One kayak was out there that day. As you know, the water levels have been extremely low this year so, I was able to "walk on water" on sand bars in my knee-high boots in some places.

    Yep...

    End of the day at sundown, getting dark, and still hadn't caught any BASS on the lure. So, I tried again at a spot I was successful at earlier in the day, but open water, figuring BASS would be off bed feeding when, BAM! "Finally!" I thought. By the way it was fighting, I could swear it was a BASS, albeit a smaller one but, to my surprise, a catfish with part of a plastic bag attached. I had a heck of a time removing the treble too, and made him bleed pretty good.

    BTW, what's up with plastic bags and catfish? I've caught a catfish on a Rapala Crankbait with a plastic bag attached before as well...

    FYI: As shallow as Heritage Pond is (average), I don't pass ANY potential BASS beds up anymore. It doesn't matter how shallow it is, even 6", I cast into any spot that I think a BASS would choose to hang out. Until recent, I've always walked past the "too shallow" spots. But now, the more time I spend there and stand in the shallow waters, the more the potential spots are opening up, and the more BASS I'm catching! I've had BASS splash my feet then swim away in <6" of water after seeing me approach along the shore.

    Question:

    I bit on the fluorocarbon sales pitch back in 2015 and haven't used anything else since. I've been winding my own spinning reels but always seem to have an initial problem with backlash for the first three or four casts, until the line conforms to the shape of the reels spool. I'm filling the spool to about to the 3/4 mark, applying gentle pressure by pinching the line between my thumb and forefinger. The last few days have been a DISASTER for me, not to mention getting hung up on EVERYTHING! I use mostly 8lb Vanish but recently recently using red label Seagar. Is there something Im doing wrong or anything suggestions out there?
