Finally I got a day off in over a month. I had been dying to go fishing and of course the weather sucks(just my luck.) So I went anyways wind blowing 8 to 10 and its 40 degrees. I tried everything in my tackle bag from top water to dragging a gulp on the bottom. I honestly thought I was going to get skunked and I froze my **** off for nothing. So I broke out the popping cork(I tend not to use the popping cork because you miss a lot of bites) and put a new penny gulp shrimp on it. First cast I finally catch a red after 5 hours of freezing my **** off. He's not the biggest but he's legal and he ate great. My first report on here btw.
