The fish were nowhere to be found but right at sunset I had a really good hit and to my surprise it was a really good trout!! One minute later Rhonda had a hard hit but got off and 30 sec later she had a solid take and she expertly guided her to my net!! You all have got to see her smile...that's why I love to take her fishing!!! (such enthusiasm)

My set up is attach a cork 4 ft from the soft plastic bait (twin tail grub) and troll it at varying speeds . Today it was the green color.

Last shot is Rhonda in down town Blounts Creek Bridge



We wish EVERONE A HAPPY AND WEALTHY NEW YEAR!!!

    nice catch! i went out yesterday to but i skunked out. my red fish honey hole was holding them but that wind you were talking about was not letting me see them until i was right on top of them and when i would stop paddling to get my rod the wind just blew me back. tight lines to you for 2012.
