Just got back from hitting a local spot. After a long day of school I was ready for some fishing. It rained for a bit but didn't last long. Ideally I wanted a walleye but I knew a decent trout was possible so I kept that in the back of my mind. I put in a couple hours of daylight and an hour and a half of darkness or so. Didn't get anything once it was dark but during the daylight some small smallies were caught and one hard-fighting cutbow. They all came on a shadow rap. Today was a reminder of how crappy shadow rap hooks are. I've seen small wipers bend the hooks and now a cutbow. Definitely upgrade them if you use them. I still need to upgrade mine.
