    By / July 5, 2015 / Murphy City Hall Pond

    Decided to give Murphy City Hall Pond another go this morning. Had several hook ups but missed setting the hook. And then, had something bite and run with the line. Took out drag and could not turn it. Ended up wrapping the line around the fountain. Oh well, can’t get them all!
