Happy Ending

After 3 days without fishing due to strong cold winds, I was anxious to get out tonight. Arrived at Thomas point Shoal around 6 PM and anchored in "the spot". The wind was blowing south and the tide was coming in so things were all discombobulated. I casted until my arms hurt..not a bump, swirl or any other sign of life. Pulled anchor and moved several times and finally gave up around 7:45. The winds in the river had really laid down and the sunset was beautiful. I stopped at marker 13 to make a few casts before heading in. Did not seem like the fish were there and I was just ready to call it a night, when I got a nice bump and it was fish on. She really reeled off some line and came to the surface several times with much fanfare. It turned out to be a very heavy 24 inch fish. Nice way to end the night.
