I've caught a total of three fish in all my years of fishing at Petrie Island and didn't add to that total yesterday.. It's weird. You see people fishing all over the Island so what's up with that? I don't think I've ever seen anyone pull one outta the water there either. It's a conspiracy!
We did see a raccoon though. I tossed him our uneaten bait.
The next day we went fishing on the front lawn (I let my daughter cast with a Gardenia hose connector I could have lent Lenzspot when he borrowed my pressure washer to do his deck(grin)) and had much better luck.
When one cast went awry and fell into the street, we almost caught a car!
It ran over the line, caught it a bit and.. well.. You can't set the drag on 6 pound test for a car. It just can't be done. Maybe if I had a fighting chair and aircraft wire..
