In order to catch up I need to do this in bulk! If I don’t do this I will never catch up! I have a trip to Nebraska in there as well, but ill post it up later. We are simply slaying them at the pits. Some days are a little better than others but we never get skunked.
4/28 – a little bit slower of the day at the pits. I started with the fly and eventually switched over to the spinning rod. I caught one on a black wooley bugger and then the bite stopped. Its seems that the first few casts will get them on the fly and after a while they stop falling for it. Then I have to cast out further to get them, which is why I am always armed with the spinning rod. Anyway, we had a couple of doubles on throughout the day so Jeremy is really loving the spot. As for the dorky pictures with the buff on my face, that was a running joke that we have with some of my buddies about looking like a “pro fisherman” with the buff on. lol
5/05 – While in Nebraska I purchased some cool looking poppers and a white “cloth” worm. I am not sure what ele to call the thing, but it is essentially a cloth worm on an offset bass hook. When I saw it I loved it and thought it might work great for bass. Sure enough, the worm has a fantastic action to it and looks great swimming in the water. Even better than that, it produces fish!
Total Fish: 10 Largemouth Bass
5/8 – 3 days later I went out again with my buddy Art. He isn’t much of a fisher but he was visiting so I figured I would take him out on the water and hoped to get him into some fish. This trip was only a spin fishing day since it was pretty windy. Did happen to catch a nice one, which looked kind of slim hipped so I figure it was a post spawner. Art did happen to get into a couple of fish so we were both happy.
Total fish: 5 Largemouth Bass
5/11 – Another super windy day so I only brought along the spinning rod. Not a lot of big ones but a good amount of fish.
Total fish: 12 Largemouth Bass
5/12 – The next day was windy but I brought along the fly rod anyway. We fished off of some steep cliffs and sure enough the bass were very active in this untouched area. I walked around and made my way back to the spot with the cattails to use the fly rod. I managed a couple of quick ones on the Golden Oriole again. Caught them on both the Fly and the spinning rod.
Total Fish: 14 bass.
Total fish: 48 Largemouth bass
