Had a great weekend over at lake anna in VA. Went out the last night for an hour and took my revenge. Caught 2 really nice bream and this awesome bass, that fought like hell and did a nice acrobatic show. I was so dam happy when I landed him.
Tonight i go out again before we head home for Richmond. It had stormed like crazy all day and finally cleared up around 6pm (perfect timing). So I paddle my little john boat out there for another round. Nothing is hitting top water, but within minutes I hook a nice catfish on my Puglisi blue gill
. Then another nice bass on a #4 orange popping bug, just a little smaller than the on in the pic. After that I had another small bass and bream.
So after maybe 3 hours spent on the water all weekend I think I did really well. It sure was a nice weekend, and I was happy
Heres some pics. I only had my phone the first night to take pics, I wish I had it the second night.
Both bream were over 11" which is a citation in my state.
Oh and by the way I was running both flies at once. I had the bluegill chasing the popper, worked really well except kind of tricky to cast at first.

Also the bream in the pic took the blue gill fly. I thought that was kinda funny.
