Default While on my evening walk...

I stumbled on a few flounder. Found a nice track towards the end of my trip, followed all over the place and then there she was in chest deep water staring right at me. Probably 20"+ fish, not huge, but a nice fish, and just like that I saw a puff of sand and she was gone. Not sure what I did, she was just spooky I guess. One out of the two fish I stabbed were buried good, the other laying on top, 14 and 15". Only had about 2 hours total. Was using my Custom made bamboo pole and Cosson gig head made by the man himself! Love the setup Jim. That doesnt mean I quit using my Choppedliver gigs, they still rock it.

Nothing like getting your daily exercise in, harvesting dinner, fishing, and hunting all at the same time 3 min from your house. Appears to be a few fish up in the bayous.
