Well, bummer. Saturday started off really well. The water was fairly calm, and we found a school of pogies almost imediately. Filled the baitwell in one cast. Turned around and there was a shrimp boat pulling nets just a half mile away. Perfect. Drifted in behind him and picked up a small dusky within a couple of minutes. Let him go and the repositioned behind him again and the wife hooked up with a decent blacktip. Unfortunately, that was the last fish of the day. I very stupidly pulled the rod way too high and grabbed the leader (without gloves - duh) too close to the top. When he flipped and dove, it not only snapped the rod, but ripped the leader down in my hand and into the braid. 11 stitches.
