I picked up Dan (Pondboy) and we hit a drive thru for breakfast and more important for me coffee!
Down the road we found the Fox River and the next thing I knew I had my breathable chest waders on, and my drift rod set up with Raven equipment up and down the rod. Raven high vis mono, Raven premium balsa float, silicone float tubing, micro-swivel, fluro leader, Raven split-shot, and all that terminated to a Raven specialist hook.
I nose-hooked a minnow, set my float and worked the waist deep water for any structure I might bump my bait into. I was set up perfectly for what happened next. My specialized float designed for fast deep current dipped below the surface and slid to the right. I pulled the line tight and the specialist hook attached itself to the top lip of this cute channel catfish.
