Dan and Josh Griffith came over from Middle Tennessee to fish with me today. After some family vacations of my own, it's been so long since I fished, so I was sort of starting from scratch.

It took some hunting and pecking, but we finally found some decent numbers of "eating-sized" fish. That was good because Dan wanted to take home a cooler full for the freezer. After we filled the cooler, we went in search of a big bite... and that turned into an ugly story.

We didn't find much, but after about three hours of perseverence one rod bounced and then bowed down. I was closest and reached for it... but before I could get it out of the holder, a BIG fish made a screaming run. Drag too tight... wouldn't slip... the fish actually twisted my rod holder around where rod was pointed straight at the fish with NO flex and I heard the saddest of songs called "Pop Goes the Leader." All that happened in about three seconds.

I was sick! I've seen a few BIG bites... and that was one REALLY BIG bite. But, we'll never know. \:\(

Still a great day on the water with a great father-son duo. We actually took time to do some "stringer shots," and the stringer was darn near to heavy to heft. Which means life is good and gettin' better every day.
