Hit Riverside Park this mornin with BigDog, FishFinger, and Osmosis to do a little drift fishing for the Chrome Dome brats. Had plenty of short strikes, head shakers and bait brutalizations, and only two to the bank. Both caught during the heat up of the afternoon bite, and both were a spawning pair. I picked off the buck first, and 10 or 12 minutes later his gorgeous, scale spitting hen got stabbed in pretty much the same spot as where I stuck her handsome little buck. Coon Dogs on Vision #3's, or #4 Owner N.P.'s. Bait bite was savage in the morning though, just could not get one stabbed proper. Lots of multiple head shakers, or set the hook and reel down to the last roll off the hook, but in the end bait wiped up the corkies, yarn, jigs, spinners, or whatever everyone else was throwin. Only two retained out of Riverside today would be a pretty fair guesstimate. And of course, the jerk who skipped middle school 4 days a week to hone cold weather sniper tactics hooks-up the limit, of the spawning pair... Partners in life. Partners on grill. The only proper thing to do right.
