Thanks! It only took me loosing 6 fish-on's in 2 days to finally land one in the net!! 6/1 ratio = a long season, I hope that improves now that I can feel a fish bite and can set the hook quicker!

you mean the ratio is going to go up??

Im still stoked I got one after only 2 weeks of getting skunked and never actually catching anything bigger then a 20inch trout up here in the Northwest.. I use to catch a lot of stuff down in FL when I was a youngin but nothing as hard to catch as this..

2 weeks of trying after I actually was shown what to do.. I can't count my summer on the Sandy fishing with my 1-3lbs ugle stick summer steelheading!

I went 0-8 one day, and each fish was hooked solidly, other days I've gone 10-10. It's different every time out. That's what keeps it interesting.

Congrats!!!!

Congrats!!!!

W00t!!!!

I just tagged my first this last weekend, too... 25.5" hen on the Sixes.

My first thought after getting 'er in was, "Wow... I finally LANDED one!" after losing every single one that I hooked last year, I land the first one that I hook this year. Go figger!

Anyway, here's looking forward to many many more, right?:clap:

First Winter of the year!

Don't often post but it's the first one of the year for me.... also caught a 6-7lb Native with a pink worm, first time fishing with the pink worm.
