    Not trying to hijack… LOL!
    Longear. Pictures don’t do them justice. Brighter than many fish I’ve seen in the aquarium trade. Can’t wait til I find a hole deep enough to cast one into, Werf. You know me…

    Will report.

    Up that stealth game. One of the deadliest spots in existence is the undercut bank. Sometimes, and especially back there, there are false and undercut banks even on small creeks that can hide fish you would swear aren't even real.

    Oh, heck yeah! We snuck up on an undercut 6 ft above the creek then saw 2 foot-long small mouth bolt, never to be seen again. LOL! Trying to be stealthy. Maybe too stealthy. Almost stepped on a young copperhead the other day. Luckily, it wasn’t to ornery and just headed for cover.

    Copperhead bite sucks, but at least it won't kill you (though cottonmouth can, rarely)... ask me how I know...

    citruspirate , here's my report from the last time I fished east of the Rockies..

    Cottonmouth will tell you they are there, and often won't move, simple matter of going around. Copperheads freeze and try to blend in... Lol

    IME, copperheads will run from you, cottonmouth will run at you. Been chased by a few of them in my youth. Stuff of nightmares…

    Preview of my ditch fishing from Norcal last week. Been too swamped at work to write a report, but have a draft going and have been editing every night. Soooooon.
