I am pretty much caught up with my backed up fishing trips. The trip I will be discussing took place on March 11th.
Jeremy and I decided to give Davis pond a try last wedenesday. As usual I loaded up Excalibur, a box of flies and took the drive out to Davis. I arrived around 4pm, tied on a light cahill which is what I had luck on the week before.
Sure enough, I hammered those blue gills right away. Some were tiny, others were a nice hand size. Every other cast was a bite or a fish. Now I am from the camp that calls all panfish blue gills but I think there are only bluegills and perch in that pond and I caught both of them.
A little later, my fly protégé Jeremy came around and I taught him exactly how to catch the bluegills. After a few casts, Jeremy caught his first bluegill on the fly rod! And after that a second and a third. He was ecstatic and I couldn’t be more proud!
I continued to fish and ended the day with 14 panfish. What a great day of fishing at this new fishing hole.
Total fish: 14 Bluegills
