I managed to run out yesterday and hit the Monocacy for a few hours in the evening. Last time it rained here in Maryland, at least near my house, was Sunday. The weather was nice and cool. It was actually in the low 80s. Shocking for August. A full moon was on its way. Everything was lining up perfectly. It was going to be a splendid trip. Here is the kicker though...I had a terrible fucking time. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong. My camera stopped working, the line was a mess, my casting was off, I missed a ton of fish, the water was high and dirty, the leader kept twisting blah, blah, blah. You get the point. I stopped having fun after a while. I have always said when that happens, it is time to pack it in. Well I didn't. I decided to push the envelope and as such more shit continued to happen. I was determined to stay until dark which I did but I didn't enjoy it. Not one bit. No sir....not one bit. I should have left but I didn't. I managed to land a total of 21 fish. Two were smallmouth, two were red eyed rocks, one was a fall fish and the rest were long ears. I used the Monocacy Bumble Bee primarily. Still rocking the Eagle Claw Featherlight. I can't stop. I love it. Anyways, I did manage to land probably the biggest red eyed rock I have ever caught. It was a great fish as you will see from the photo...oh yeah the fucking camera broke! Well there it is folks. 21 fish landed, not a single damn photo taken and I had a miserable time. Whatever! I need to somehow redeem myself in the very near future!
