Did you experience any firsts last season?

Let's hear them.

I had a few!

1. First time a LMB grabbed a crappie I was retrieving. My first chance to feel my fly drag really sing. He proceeded to leap, and spit it, but what a thrill.

2. First fish on a live Mac. I know, I know,...

3. 1st on a fly,(FW) as well as, 1st on a fly I tied. Crappie, LM, pickerel, 

4. 1st striper on a live eel, as well as, 1st on an eel I trapped.

5. 1st over-slot fish.

6. 1st time ever trying a fly set-up.

7. and, of course, 1st time tying a fly.

 

This year....

the kayak!

Nice to see people on flies. I spent time honing my skills on FW last year. This year,,,...the salt. 

Need to research on floating/sinking/intermediate lines.

  1. First season NOT fishing the salt out of a kayak. Still worried about the shark attack that hit very close to home.
  2. Caught my first 49" Northern Pike.
  3. First season NOT keeping any stripers.
  4. First season with only one skunk day on stripers.

When you're 70, you start running out of firsts and have to get creative. :cool:

Cunner, eh?  Haven't seen any of those up here ever.  Buddy of mine caught a tautog about 6 years ago off Portland.
