went out for about 3 hrs Wed. the weather was beautiful....no wind....but no fish either. :cry:

I started with a small hopper to see if the bluegill were biting and got not a whiff.....then gave the Dr. Death a workout for the remaining 2 1/2 hrs ....

Image

all the way around the pond and not a hit....the water is stained a tea color and visibilty is about a ft. so unless it fell in front of thier nose....I'm guessing that was the issue.

Went back out yesterday for a few hours but the wind was again howling...so went back to the spinning rod.....I got a few runt bluegill and two pretty nice sized ones....but still very slow. The biggest one was about 3/4 of a pound and had a vibrant orange and yellow belly...but lost him trying to lift him over the rope on the front of the toon. :x

Also caught a couple more bass....but slower than the other day.....

small ones....

Image

biggest one....

had a cool fly over from an apache helicopter too....

Image

tried to zoom in a little but could'nt find it on the view finder because of the glare of the sun...so I zoomed back out.

Hopefully my next weekend off will be spent dumping fertilzer and installing automatic feeders...and working on a fishing dock for the girls :D

Must still be a bit early for the gills.....I went down this morning and threw a couple of scoops of fish food off the dock and only one or two small pops....but then a couple of wide mouths with 6" wiskers showed up and started skimming the food off the surface. I love catfish. :D

What kind of fly is that yellow one in the bass's mouth, Tom? Did you tie that one?

Mongro Bead head snowplow special ------------ my ass.

The last of the snow finally melted yesterday.

Pretty nice bassums, Tom

Mike -------- You REALLY need to come to PFF V - 21 in Shady Valley. Only guarantee that I will give you is that we will have some bad ass weather.
