    It was a beautiful day here in the mountains so I decided to do some fishing in the catawba river.I caught me up some nightcrawlers last night,so I was ready to go.I fished for 3 or 4 hours and caught a couple beautiful trout a bass and several bream,catfish and sucker fish.Theres no better place than a river bank to do some thinking and clear your head.I could have stayed there til dark but turns out I didn't catch enough nightcrawlers to last til dark,lol.Still I did a lot of thinking and caught a few fish.The only thing that would have made the day better would have been if my fishin buddy Gracie had been there with me.Nice way to spend a Saturday!!!

    thanks
    Thank Guys.I wore the spursuader shirt because I just knew there was going to be some fish caught and some pics taken,lol.There seemed to be a lot more smallmouth in the river 5 or 6 years ago than they are now.But back then I used a carolina rig and watermelon seed worm and purple worm.I haven't used that rig in a while because its just too much work trying to keep from getting hung up.But I did catch some nice ones back in the day,lol.And they are some GOOOD eating and a lot of fun to catch.I have a lot of fun catching the trout too though,and anything else that will bite.I just love to Fish.

    It is a great spot to fish,and the best thing is that its private.I don't have to worry about it being overfished since me and Gracie are the only ones who fish there.I was wondering how the fishing was up your way,although I have never heard of the lake you spoke of.We mostly catch the trout ,and everything else on nightcrawlers.Sometimes if its slow I will throw some jigs.But I don't throw anything that I can't afford to lose,lol.
