Me and a few of my fishing buddies went to McSwain for an end of the year trip. We arrived at the lake at about 6:15. My buddy took his little boat so we took turns banking and boating it. I got my 1 on the boat with nightcrawler salmon egg combo but that was it for me. We tried trolling but were only able to get 1 on a rapala J7 in firetiger. The rest of the fish we got came off the bank. Most of them were on the garlic chartreuse powerbait by the brush pile. From what we heard from everyone else it was a slow day out there but we ended up with 8 trout for 4 of us. It was freezing cold out there today and the water was a little stained. Overall it was a good way to end my fishing year!!

Good to hear it! There are some monsters in that pond.
