Friday's venture to MVL with Calhoun's 850 grain head and Sage Xi3 10 weight was a bust. With this strange weather pattern, it actually felt like summer on Friday. Rain is expected on Tuesday with cold weather to follow. Perhaps it was this that caused the fish to be tight lipped. At any rate it sucked. Casting that heavy rig was not easy but I didn't expect it to be, I need some more practice with it. Timing is critical. Bill mentioned that you needed to really be fast on the
backcast to generate enough power to throw that line.
