Fished another local pond on Sunday. I had to take full advantage of the summer-like conditions. Kat was a trooper and tagged along to catch some rays.
This particular pond is no secret, I seemed to be the last to the party and the fishing reports weren't great. Nevertheless, I had done some scouting on the topo maps before hand and had some ideas on where to try - spots which could be easily overlooked. Sure enough, the areas were looking as good in person as they looked on the map and the bass were out in force.
A chartreuse and white murdich minnow twitched overtop the weeds was the ticket. Fished an hour or so and caught 6 bass and a crappie and missed/lost a few others. None of the bass were very large and a couple were quite small. That being said, they hit hard and fought a good fight. Most were stocky 12-14 inchers.
All in all it was a great way to spend the afternoon. The lesson to take away from this is that a little homework can go a long way even on small water.
Some pix to come.
