The bee hive is a spot I found last summer when I noticed an old man fishing on a peak on the other side of the slough. My buddy Luis was with me when we decided to explore and found a spot with a lot of vegetation and even more bees! We had a carton of worms and high hopes for fish and we were not disappointed. In one trip I caught two catfish, one crappie and a striper. The variety was what really excited me but there was also a trend that began to develop from the first time I fished there. I caught at least two fish every time I fished there, in other words, I found my first real honey hole.
Fishing can be a really superstitious sport and I firmly believe in some of these when it comes to fishing. One such superstition is not guaranteeing that a person will catch fish. The first time I guaranteed that my buddy I would get him into his first fish, we both got skunked. And initially I thought it was due to colder temperatures but a week later we went back with lowered expectations and slayed them again! I wondered what the production would be like during winter? Well, Last Saturday I found out and it was exactly what I expected.
In case you have been living under a rock the past couple of months, it feels like spring right now. I’m not really sure how cold the water temperature is but I figured since its warm outside, the fish might think its spring and get after some bait! I was wrong! The fish still seem to be in Winter mode. I had two bites the entire time and neither of them stuck.
So I found out that the bee hive sucks during winter. I got skunked but at least I answered a question that would have bugged me for the remainder of winter had a not tried it out.
Well, I will be fishing tomorrow but I am not sure where yet, definitely for some trout! Also, I only have two more posts and I will have made it to post #100!!
