went shoppin at Academy (yea Overtime!), and besides the ugly stik, got 30lb. line for both! ugly sticks, one a florescent green (looks great, easily visible) and a light/plain green green.
caught: 1 perch, 1 catfitch (who was frozen, poor buddy)
we think there might have been a 20 degree difference in water/air temp.
