Default Unlikely catch...

Here I am just catching some nice Redear sunfish, bluegill and a few nice crappie, and this guy decides to inhale my #14 nymph.

Lots of fun on my 4wt.

Hey Steve,

How's Fl. ?

You are missing out on about 18" of fresh snow and highs in the lower to mid single digits..... something about a well digger's ass.

I am jealous of the bass, but more-so that you are even fishing.

Nice catch.

Tony

Hi ahi sashimi,

Nice Bass. I am surprised he paid any attention to a nymph. What size nymph was it.

Frank

Hey Tony,

Yep, enjoying the weather. Looks like KC is getting hit hard this winter. It finally cooled down here, though. It's a frigid 55-60 here - don't know if I'll be able to handle it.

I'm guessing that isn't a #14, but def. smaller than a #8. Either a #12 or #10 nymph.

The fishing in my "back yard" has been most excellent. Here are some of the exotics that I wrangled to shore on my 4wt:

Butterfly Peacock Bass (female), about 20-21" long and 6+ lbs, on a Clouser:

"Mayan" Cichlid - the exotic "bluegill" here in S. Florida. In looking at the specs, this is a big one for sure, on a black woolly bugger:

Grass carp, a genetically altered triploid carp bred for use in vegetation control, about 36" long (note how he dwarfs my rig...), on a carp berry:

All released to catch another day.
