I usually don’t start doing this until later in summer but I heard some stories so off I went. Yeah it was a good idea. That shiny object in the top photo is a 4.5 lb speck and we caught them non stop for three hours in the middle of the darkest night. If you haven’t done it I recommend it. I even wrote about it in my book that you may have heard about…. hint, hint 😉
Ponds and lakes are warming up and most fish are in pre spawn mode and ready to attack poppers:
You also may see some larger fish in really shallow:
Here’s to bass!
I actually went fishing today! I know, amazing right? Hooked up with my buddy Pete at his place. He was in the fish yesterday and the word “guaranteed” was used. He wasn’t lying!
Here’s a quick video of Pete getting it done:
You can even pre order!
There’s a story behind each and every one but that would mean I’d have to write 9,000 words and I haven’t got it in me. Plus I cheated a little because a couple of these are montages. I did a lot more freshwater fishing this year than I have done recently. I’m sure there’s a reason for that. But basically I still love it and I’m loving that my daughter caught our biggest bass of the year. Have a great 2017 and many happy fishes.
