I bought this blank in 2017. It's a cheap Chinese one. It arrived in a thin pvc tube that broke during transit. One section didn't survive. The other two that did sat in the spare room until a few days ago.

I took it to the canal in hopes of fishing a spot I had some good luck in a few days ago.

Unfortunately, someone else beat me to it.

"Upstream", I hooked into a very nice tilapia. Not wanting to lift it onto the bank with the rod, I laid the rod down and went to the car to grab the net. The tilapia escaped. I wasn't able to get a pic of the first fish on that rod, so please accept this picture of Audrey Hepburn as a substitute.

Lost a couple, missed a couple, and then got this guy. Image

Which got this guy's attention. Image

I fished a little bit longer. A large swirl of a feeding gator twenty feet away signaled it was time to go home. There will be other days.Image

Sounds like a good enough day to me! And nice that you salvaged something from that shipping fiasco.

Looks like a great day. Shame you missed the Tilapia. I'm sure it was a beauty given the substituted photo.
