My old friend who I do not get to see that often came up to do a little raleigh fishing. We started off at a smaller pond that I frequent and caught about 5 or 6 LMB. I had just bought a new rod and reel for my Christmas present for myself. I bought a shimano curado baitcaster with a st.croix rod. I always have the worst time trying to catch that first fish on that new rod so I was used to not catching anything with the rod yet! I let my good friend try my new reel out because he has the same model but about 7 years older. Of course his first cast he hooks a 3# bass. I was a little ticked, but was happy at the same time. I caught a few that day, but all of them were with other rods. I decide to take him to another lake I like to frequent. WE were there about a half hour and moved around the lake to a spot where I could not get to in the summer because of overgrowth. I decided to change lures and my first cast I hooked up with this 7# whopper. MY good friend threw the same lure 2 min. later about ten feet away and got his whopper. What an awesome day for some old friends to get together! We had an awesome day after that even though we did not catch any after that. That is fishing!!!:D
