I caught one fish, which was what I intended to do at minimum. Caught a little smallmouth on a drop shot with a BioSpawn VileCraw. I’m lucky I caught it with the recent rains mucking up the river.
Thinking the trail was straight, smooth and landscaped.
Thinking the recent rains had no effect on the fish.
Multiple casting errors.
Underestimating the tick population.
The drop shot is awesome.
How to read a map better.
Ticks are a very real threat.
Wear sensible hiking shoes.
Being fat is not conducive to hiking.
These lists are open for more additions.
All in all, fishing is fun, even if you go through extremes to do it.
