Here is my skunk breaker, at long last. Small but a welcome sight. Hit a 1/2oz red eye shad, it had both trebles in its mouth. A greedy little guy!
I dropped the wife off at work and hit the banks of the big lake at Umstead state park for a couple hours. It was pretty windy and it was the only action I had today, but I was happy for it.

Nice... something very important about those skunk-breakers that's hard to really put your finger on. Just makes catching fish somehow seem more... possible (even though logically you know it, makes it *feel* more attainable) I guess.

Congrats on the catch!

Nice to see you got something there. Worked the banks at both the big and little lakes earlier this week and got only one little nibble in about 3 hrs total. Was throwing a spinner and 2 different lipless cranks. Glad you broke the skunk!
