View Full Version : lunch break fishing

I'm back from fishing during my lunch break here in the North bay. I'm pumped up. I caught 6 fish. I lost two big fish because they each broke my girly man split rings shaking and leaping like a tarpon. Three of the fish were smaller keepers. Most on topwater. Yozuri hydro pencil, Sammy, Spook. The fish get spooked easily so after the first two, all was quiet. Then I threw a ratLtrap and that seemed to draw them back. After loosing the second big fish the school split for good and I was also over my hour long break.

Yes when I got those lures I did change out my hooks but probably didn't change out the split rings. woo. lesson learned.

Daamn... wide open topwater biting during lunch :o it doesn't get any better than that. I wish I had water near my work. How big were the ones you lost. Sounds like the World Series bite is on schedule.
