I fished somewhere else today that WASNT my storm drain!! haha. There are some lakes kinda close to me and I have fished them kinda sorta half assed a couple of times and never really had any luck. Well Sunday i went to a creek and tried out my new Sage bass rod but it was too high from saturdays rain and off color. So the rod started with a slight skunk...not good.
So off to these ponds, never caught much but there is always little bass patrolling the shore and bluegill so hey why not. Tied on a clouser minnow i have that i wanted to look like a bluegill,
^^This, and started chucking it alone the banks with short strips. Well the little bass were all over it. First 3 fish wiggled off ( its barbless...bah ) but I finally brought one to hand,
YAY! No more skunks, So i walked around the lake, catching a few more and most of them flopping off, i had one that would have been close to the legal 12" length buuuuut it flopped off again. All in all a good day, I spent alittle over an hour there and caught 6 fish so i cant complain. Here's another dink bass
Then it hit me on the drive back home, in the past 5 days, I've gone fishing 4 times. Most excellent.
