I got to join in the fun also...
Texas Red Killers catch trout too. It was an all tail deal and pumpkinseed/chartreuse was a productive color.
The new rods by Fishing Tackle Unlimited were an absolute joy to throw. One thing we enjoyed, besides having enough backbone to control a fish with, was a noticeable amount of extra distance.
Here I'm wondering what pumpkinseed/chartreuse is supposed to represent, and more curiously, why it was tastier than my topwaters in the afternoon.
Anyway, today was everything fishing was supposed to be about with excited smiles, happy people and willing fish.
Naaaa, you don't want any of this...
