Let's face it, there are going to be some fishing trips during this endeavor when I'm going to be more focused on getting it over with than actually trying to catch a fish.
This was one of them.
Because I slept late and because we had plans for Saturday night, I needed to do my 30 minutes in the afternoon. We took a day-trip to Cooper's Rock State Forest and afterwards Lindsay joined me for a half-hour of worm-dunking in a little trout pond near the park. I'm always in the market for new locales since I need to find a new place to fish every day that I'm here.
It was hot, humid, sunny and the middle of a day, i.e, perfect conditions for NOT catching fish.
Which we didn't.
Next Up: I still haven't utilized Cheat Lake for my 30 minutes. That could change after 12am or early tomorrow morning.
