    First time on the "Hooch"

    First time on the Hooch from Ringer Park. Headed to the Hooch for a day of striper fishing with a great new friend (MoneyMan). We put in at Ringer Park just south of Franklin. A beautiful morning, you could not ask for any better. Started off trying to catch some bait (good thing we brought some) we only caught 2 threadfin after about 40 minutes of casting. Rode north towards Franklin to find the big ones. Anchored up in different areas of the river, finally a pull down, it was a small lineside. The skunk was off our backs.
    We caught 3 stripes, 1 spot, 1 catfish and a 4+lb Hybird.
    Headed back to the ramp, we were flagged down by a man in a boat that had ran out of fuel. Good Samaritans we were, we help the gentlemen get fuel for their boat. That made for the best ending of a great day on “The Hooch”.

    sounds like a fun time. I am going to try to get out tonight, but we'll see if I actually can get the time.
