Weekend Fishing Update 6-9-13

I managed to do a little fishing Saturday morning and again Sunday evening at Milford Lake. The fish just didn’t cooperate.

Only one small bass was landed Saturday morning and I was skunked on Sunday.

Only bass of the weekend.

My girl decided to go with me both days. She explored the shore while I did the fishing.

Sunday I managed to hook into something big. It pulled hard then was gone. When I retrieved my fly I figured out quickly that I had hooked a carp in the side.

It was still a beautiful weekend spent outdoors.

Oh yeah I also found a size 18 hook that I dropped a week ago… with my foot.

Ouch!
Ouch!

I’m glad the barb was small!
