I had some down time early Sunday evening and with about 2 hours left of daylight, I hopped in my truck to go wet a line. After a few dinks, I got that bite. I switched over from a Texas rig watermelon red Yum Dinger over to a drop shot and luckily, it paid off. I didn’t have a scale but I’d guess somewhere in the 3 lb range.
Earlier that afternoon, my dog chewed up the brim of my favorite fishing hat. I bought this hat in Gainesville, Florida in my college years. I don’t recall exactly what year but if I had to guess, I’d say between 1997-1999. I’m not superstitious at all, but I never leave home without this hat. It’s worn, smelly and fits my head like a glove. It’s uglier now, but it definitely adds character if you ask me.
Who else has a lucky fishing hat?
