A Little Rain and Bad Luck
I headed out at 6PM and I was the only one at the Grumpy Old Man Hole. About 6:20 it started to sprinkle and then became a steady light rain. I missed my first 3 hits, they were on the SE side so I shifted all my stuff there. First fish was this pretty green jumpin bullhead that hit a jig and minnow beneath a bobber.
I then got a little pike on the jig and minnow
The toothy bullhead actually broke my line but that was after I had him up on shore. It did almost get back in the lake though. Quite a bit later the bobber went under and I brought up this silver bullhead.
Unfortunately when I was lifting it in my line broke and the jig went flying into the rocks and disappeared. Because it was cold and getting dark I had trouble trying to put on a new jig. Eventually I gave up trying and threw a beetle spin after about 5 minutes of that I gave up for the evening. It's really unfortunate I couldn't get another jig tied because I think I might have gotten more.
