Interesting, and pretty exciting day

Class was cancelled today because of the holiday so today was a pretty fun day for me. We went to my grandmothers house last night for easter and had alot of fun watching movies and chatting. We left this morning and came home where I had a nice surprise waiting for me at the door. Fed-ex arrived earlier than I had anticipated and the 2 monitors I bought on Thursday are now here. This means I now have 3 monitors! So i'll be setting those up tomorrow after class.

After connecting and powering up the monitors to make sure they were in working order I left to go fishing with a friend of mine. We showed up at the lake around 1:15pm. We got out in the boat and began trolling around and before we knew it we had already caught several. About 6 or 7 fish between 6 and 10 inches in about 1.5 hours. Considering how cold the lake still is we were doing pretty good. THEN!!! I cast my line out towards the bank near the back of the lake, began reeling in the line and WHAM I got a major bite. After a decent fight I got her to the boat and we weighed and measured her. She ended up being about 7 lbs and was 25" long (largemouth bass btw). This is a citation here in Virginia and is the longest fish I've ever caught. I'll be sending off tomorrow to get a certificate for the citation fish.

Today was a weird day at the lake. We frequent this lake sometimes as much as 5 times a week and we've never caught anything nearly that large there. After catching this monster we didnt catch any other fish until after dark and even then we only caught 1. At one point we got out of the boat and bank fished to stretch our legs for a bit where I got my line caught on the bottom. After failing to retrieve the lure I decided to just wait until we got back in the boat to get it so I sat down and chilled for a bit. When I sat down, I looked down and spotted a 4 leaf clover. Odd Odd Odd indeed. Catch a monster, no more fish, hang the bottom, find a 4 leaf clover! Weird stuff.

Anyways, I am now home and getting pretty tired after a long day. Until next time, thanks for reading.
