I'm not sure what Nathaniel and Caleb did with the first 8 1/2 hours of this year, but sometime around 8:30 this morning, they tallied their first fish of the new year. Nathaniel guessed that they caught 15 or 20 fish, all close to the bottom and on little jigs, and pretty much all from one corner of the pond. Bluegills dominated, with good quality overall, but they each managed to catch a bass or two as well.
As for me, I stayed home and worked on fish stories and did stuff around here, so I remain fishless in 2015. I'll have to rectify that soon.
