Well, I found two new ponds that, after yesterday, look to be very promising. Best part is, they are 5 minutes from home! I found them on Google earth and then remembered I had seen them before, but totally forgot about them. My buddy Jordan and I grabbed our gear and off we went.
The first one is an old golf course pond. Its been there for over 15 years and I actually remember seeing fish in the shallows walking by while playing golf. They have developed apartments near it now, but didn't touch the pond
I pulled a few perch and my buddy Jordan found this monster on a brown BH woolly bugger.
The second pond is actually right across the street! It is out behind a retirement home. They have a dock on one side but 90% of the bank is untouched. Very good looking place. This time the roles were reversed. Jordan was on the perch like flies on honey and I found this guy!
I was using a red and white #6 clouser. It was strange to me. Nothing was hitting up close to the bank. I started throwing a ton of line, 50ft +, strait out and just fished it back in and three casts in I hooked up with that bass.
They don't seem to be as aggressive as normal. I'm thinking its the weather. It has been much colder than normal for this time of year. Still fun though!
