Find a penny, pick it up, and all day long you'll have good luck! :rolleyes: What a Crock!!! :lol: Nothing was gonna salvage my day yesterday! At least I didn't fall in the river! :D So, about mid-day I'm heading up a muddy trail through the bushes and spot what looks to be a penny, I look a little closer and I see the words, one cent. I think, cool, a wheat penny! It was pretty grubby and somewhat weathered, I flip it over and start wiping the grime off of it and it turns out to be a 1905 Indian head penny! How cool is that! Damn thing still didn't bring me much luck! Lost one fish after a short fight and missed a good bite that I briefly felt the fish before the hook came free, ARGGG!!! :mad: Oh well, I've been over due for an off day! Never felt in sync all day!

My youngest with our only fish of the morning.

Beautiful fish there!!! Hey, was the penny heads up or tails up? If tails up, then that is where your bad luck is coming from!!! Pennies only bring good luck if they are heads up. hahahahaha, j/k. :)

But again, nice fish. Hopefully you will have better luck next time. At least, like you said, you didn't fall in!!!

Find it heads down give it away for luck. Nice fish, I really need to get into at least one more up here before all the fish have done their business.

Not to hijack...but, I wonder if that penny is worth a lot more nowadays?

NICE fish that your kid got.

It could still end up a good day it seems. I'm not a collector, but your penny could be worth $1-$2 dollars...maybe hundreds more. Just do a little homework and don't trust the guy who says it's worthless/litte and offers to buy it. lol
