Chasing the Dragon
And catching them too.
Went to the Dragon's Lair to try out my new rebar weights.
Thanks to Fishbones(Richard) for the rebar hook-up.
Chopped the rebar into 5-8ins lengths, weighed between 11-16oz.
The rebar worked great, lost 3 of them, cost $0.00.
Fished from 4-7:15pm.
The bite was slow til 6:00pm then they got aggressive.
1 @ 23.5", back in drink.
1 @ 24.5"
1 @ 30", 8.5#'s
Don't forget to fillet out the cheeks!

I do alot of linging early in the season and getting hung up 2-3-4 times in a friken row can be a real moral killer.
But you have to put those macks where the dragons live, "In the land where no sinker ever returns".
I'll be using them for cod as well.
The $10 bucks I save in lost lead pays for the beer.
