fishing rockpiles after pulling an all nighter....really really tired + rocks + hooks=disaster. i call it sleepcasting while standing on a big ole pile of slick jaged rocks....mmmmmmmmm my favorite. now i nap in the truck when im really tired or i sleepcast from the sand.
thats why i love the canal, man the waters cold, and boy am i lucky it wasnt deep.
oh, take the time to care for your rod as much as you do your reel, i kept cutting line and finally figured out my rod tip was the culprit...lost a few nice plugs learning that lesson.
