    Ultra Light Fishing

    After three days of rain it was nice getting out.
    Caught this one with a simple shad dart, tipped, with a night crawler.
    Wife caught some respectable perch too.
    She's never used an ultra light until today.

    Way too small right now. Think they need to be 35 inches to keep.
    Pretty sure it comes down to 20-28 inches in two days.
    I'll have one on the grill by next week.

    I am not a fisherwoman! Didn't know they were too small. I have crabbed and hunted. Hub was a big fisherman back in the day. He said there is nothing like fresh caught fish cooked in an iron skillet on a campfire. That was in CO. He used to go on two week trips on horseback and fish and hunt with friends.

    what are you calling ultra light? 6lb test? I have used an ultra light rod with 4lb test line and even a bluegill feels like a big fish on the line, I can't imagine catching a decent sized rockfish on one.

    We use lite equipment in the rivers with a Jon boat in the fall working around and under old structuers and about anything submerged. We use about 30lb spider wire with a 1/4 oz rattletrap ( silver or blue body ) and a zebco for the most part. If you know of any holes cast and drag across the top of the hole,,,,,Lots of fun.

    Use the same set up fishing the South Fork of the Shenandoah...

    Hooking into a 6" river chub is fun...a 3 lb smallmouth awesome!

    As of now, using 4lb. Don't think my lil (favorite) Daiwa could handle 6 but we have other UL reels that can.
    Perfect for perch fishing and yeah when a decent rock hits on it...FUN TIMES. Same with spot, sea trout and croakers.
    A typical outing (in our local cove) will have us both with a medium action 10lb setup along with an ultra light that I'd normally work. There's 4 to choose from.
    Now the wife has the ultra light bug too. Got her rigged up with her own 6lb setup that she'll try later today.
