So it had been a month since I was last home....way too damn long....and the last week was full of miserable crap like this! 







I swear this place is the biggest shithole on earth with people crammed in 60 story buildings wall to wall in what can only be described as giant human dumpsters!

And after dealing with traffic like this....



I was ready for some scenery like this.....







And where the traffic looks more like this.....




I also had a score to settle....ya see, the last time I was home,I took a buddy down here and while he caught a fair number of fish I hooked a couple of pigs ,but never boated a damn thing. There was one fish in particular that I was after....a fatty had broke me off just below the interstate bridge and made off with my wiggle minnow! We put in around 7:00 AM and it was a bit slow at first....me drawing first blood with this beast!.....



Then our buddy Billres connected with a nice one.....



As the day progressed....so did the fishing with lots of average smallies in the 10" to 12" range some typical redeyes and a few redbreast thrown in.....













Had'nt seen many redeyes the last few trips...but they were present yesterday...with a couple of nice ones mixed in....





But as I mentioned...we came for some nice smallies....and were rewarded.....















Including the fat bastard that stole my wiggle minnow last time! I swear this had to be the same fish...same size...out of the exact location he broke me off.....and he had a piercing in his lip...






Mission acomplished!   Till next time   n!n n!n n!n

A fine bit of fishing. Good report! Glad you got out of the shitter and got redemption. /'/

I knew you were putting me in all the wrong places.  Yea Jeff, go fish that mud flat, there should be plenty of smallies there...hahaha.  I'm happy you caught the one that broke you off last time, but now I am itching to get back and give it another shot!  We must have picked the wrong day or my fishing juju was off that day.   

Awesome report, those are some nice smallies and redeyes. 
Yup, going fishing

Good fishing and excellent report there OB!

I like NY in small doses every couple of years, but I for damn sure couldn't drive there.

Don had been "off line" for a while....his fancy internet readin machine had taken a dump...but he's back up and running...hopefully he'll add his two cents worth tonight.

Good stuff.  I felt the pain of NYC traffic for the first time driving to a wedding in Long Island last month...never again, unless the word striper is involved.

My tardy pictures and words on this score settling report.

River stage and weather conditions were tolerable fer this time of year down here.

Overbrook & Billres at the put in.



Skunk off with a small Largemouth Bass.



The bite was ON.  Caught plenty small to medium fish.







Enjoyed the scenery and company.







Heard a holler from Bill.





I did manage to get one fat 15" Smallie in the yak.  Thanks to Bill fer the
gifted Gurgler...
Just fer Kyle there is a barley pop and some leg in the picture...

including this pig...which I thought at first was a good two pound smallie...man these guys fight hard for thier size!!

Overbrook, you can quote me on this...  That is one helluva stream caught Redeye Bass right there.   

Was a grand day on the water!!!
