Anywho, so I decided to walk around to the other side of the lake. But, since the water is so high right now, the only way to get around the lake is to have waders or take the bike path (which is really far) all the way around. Since I was determined to catch something while I was out, I decided it would be good exercise and a better chance of getting some action. All in all it turned out to be a good decision. I tied on my popper and first cast.................. SLAM!!!! First Largemouth Bass of the day!! And not the biggest I've ever caught, but the biggest I caught today. Right around the 16" range. Put up quite a fight. All the Largemouth I caught today, with the exception of one, were jumpers. What a blast. Too bad no one was there with me today, So again, self taken pictures of the fish.
Totals for the day:
8 Largemouth Bass - 12" to 16"
5 Bluegill - about the size of my hand
Here are the pics!! As always, hope you enjoy!!!
|All Bluegill were caught on a spider pattern that I tied|
Till next time!!
