<p>A buddy and I hit my little honey hole the other day it was 43 degrees that morning and he got wet fast. But the fish where biteing so he was not as cold as he could have been. We started off doing the same ole same ole but he was haveing problems in the kayak I let him use and we had to change plans, but with a river that offered 7 to 10 foot of water I was sure we would catch some fish. Lost count on the #'s but keept 20 and caught 3 grinnel and 1 drum here are some of the pic's. LOST my big one due to a bran new bow anchor.</p>

Those grinnel are a fascinating fish. I've only boated one, but can't count how many have bit through my line or come loose. Thats one tough fish to keep hooked thats for sure. Looks like a heckuva day.

Well guys we did have a fish fry and they were great. I myself don't keep fish being I live on a lake that is full of small bass that have to go. But my partner did not have any fish in the freezer and we kept a few. We also fished some new water on a river we have been fishing for over 20 years, that's what I found to be the best about the trip. I have all ways said in a few different post and different sites where have the big ones gone? Well I think I have found them. The river is always changing every year but we still catch fish just not the big ones anymore, well maybe I have found where they have made there new homes. Cant wait until spring. Can anyone tell me do grinnel EXPLODE on top water like bass, like feeding or chasing minnows? If they dont I have found some huge fish.

<p>Great, great, great looking water, Joey! The trip came alive after our conversation on the phone. Glad you got to hit the water without losing your truck to the Sheriff's department! <img title="Wink" src="/site/wp-content/forum-smileys/sf-wink.gif" alt="Wink" /><img title="Smile" src="/site/wp-content/forum-smileys/sf-smile.gif" alt="Smile" /><img title="Laugh" src="/site/wp-content/forum-smileys/sf-laugh.gif" alt="Laugh" /> </p>

<p>Sounds like there's a story there, Redfish!</p>
<p>Joey, grinnel will explode on topwater. You can often hear their jaws clamp...sounds like slamming two 2x4's together underwater.</p>

Hey Redheron I have never notice the sound but the explosions seem like bass but just I could not get them to hit they would explode and I could cast to them and nothing would bite. For the most part when I find this happening I hook up with a good one but not this day. But Redfish I HAVE figured out the sheriffs department what is that ole Morris Bart says just one call that's all and I did call them and everything worked out just fine. The dispatcher with the department said she remembers me from aug. phone call so I am known at the sheriffs department now in a good way lol. I did loose a good one but not on a explosion that seems like the story of my life LOST the big one I still have a lot to learn on kayaking big fish. I have caught some good ones in a lake but it is different in a river to me there are to many factors that come into play.
