Good day of fishin' at the Canal

For those of you looking for an update or like me and just wanting to read a fishing story.

Had good luck today fishing the canal. This was my first time actually getting out and exploring the canal a bit more. For some reason, the few times I fished there before, I was trying my luck towards the bottom of the canal. Had MUCH better luck up higher towards I-5. Didn't try the pond, but didn't really need to, I was having plenty of fun! :cool: But anyways caught 4 that were 14" plus and were nice and fat!!! Caught prob another 10 that were 11" plus. (I always catch and release, makes for longer days on the water!) So all and all a happy day of fishin'!
