Hit Coulon Park for the first time this year with my Trout Magnet set up. I was also testing their SOS 2lb main line which cast like a dream and some Roostertail Scent in Shrimp.
Very surprising day as I ended up with 5 different species. Rock Bass (tiny one) Yellow Perch (super skinny) Crappie, SMB and a LMB.
One Crappie was a total slab but came off right at the shore line and the rest were very small. The Smallie came off as I was lifting it up to the over hang of fthe Gazebo. But the best surprise was a super fun fighting 2lb LMB that total caught me off guard. I was hoping it was a Smallie because a 1lb is my PB and I knew this fish was bigger than that as I first thought it was a snag because the Bobber never indicated a strike. This a rare pic of me with a fish in my hands as a person who was walking by saw the battle took a pic for me.
Plus, a person got a double order of a 4 piece Fish and Chips by mistake and offered it to me! Great 1st Outing Down at Coulon!
