Picture this, its a friday night around 10 pm and I am sitting around the house tying up some bugs and drinkin a few beers...yes you can all see where this is going. In my state of peace i received a call from my buddy Burke, he tells me that he wants to do some fishing, and of course i do as well. So we get our plans rockin and rollin to hit the MO and want to leave now! He picked me up at my place around 11 and we still had a 2 hour drive to get there and sleep in the car and figure out where in the hell we are going to fish the next day on the MO. All is going well, except that we both forgot our wallets, but we were going fishing so who gives a shit! We made it up to Lincoln to get some gas, and lock the keys in the car, so its a true midnight run because all hell is breaking loose! But we found the keys and got our shit together and got to craig. I was also a bad co-pilot and fell asleep before we got there... but the next morning i woke up in the front seat in what seems like someones front yard! Thats the perfect start to a day of fishing!

We decided where the hell we were going to fish and got out there and did it! And it was a great day of fishing, we fished hard considering that he had to be back before dark so we didnt get to recycle banks and all that good junk, and we probably would have even drilled more if that was the case!

All that aside though we did drill some fish! Them dudes were up and eating and in a frisky little mood! We had boated three fish in the first 20 minutes of the day, and they were good fish. We had a little lull in the karma for a bit after we lost an anchor...dont ask! But they eventually turned on again and we started rippin lip soon enough. The day ended on a huge downpour and we took off out of there!

This was hands down the best midnight fishing run i have ever been apart of. Shenanigans, big trout, bad karma and good karma, what the hell else can anyone as for!

hopefully everyone reading has been getting their fair share of fishing in, its good for the soul!

peace out!

Hell yeah! Dude...talk about a comedy of errors! Wallets left at home...keys locked in the car...lost anchors. BUT LOTS OF NICE FISH. And that's how it's supposed to be.

Got to hand it to you - at least you kept your sense of humor about the whole adventure - but I guess with fish like that on the end of your line, it's kinda hard not to.

dude it was a total and utter shit show, but those are always the best time you can have. haha and thanks man. you just gotta keep your eyes on the prize and thats big browns on a dry fly!!

how could that be upsetting to anyone at all haha
