Having Fun with Small Weight Rods

The purpose of having small weight rods, such as a 1 or 2, is to enjoy catching some of the smaller fish in nature and still have a good fight without harming the fish.  The Austin fishery stocked trout 23 January 2011 (a week earlier than posted on the TPWD website) at Lake Springfield.  We fished Lake Springfield 11, 15, and 25 February 2011.  I enjoy learning a spot's personality and am always amazed at how rapidly it can change.  Springfield has been a different spot each outing, and based upon the trend we've seen with warming temperatures, some carp would be beneficial.  (No, I don't want to fish for carp; I am somewhat of a snob who snubs the carp, unlike Cody Bell and Malcolm Duke.)  Regardless, the 2# rods have had some fun!
