The water level is up from the recent rains, and off-colored. There was a good current flowing in through the storm inlets into the pond. The wind was down, though, which made topwaters a good option, fished parallel to the shorelines.
I only landed 2, but they were decent fish for public ponds around here. Also lost/missed at least 3-4 others, including one DANDY that jumped several times before throwing the hook. Maybe I was overestimating...but the thought that went through my mind when that fish was jumping was "6-pounder!". In reality..probably somewhere in the 4-6lb range.
For the last few minutes of the fishing trip, I switched to one of Dale S's red & chartreuse microjigs, and caught 4-5 Bluegills and 1 Crappie.
Fun evening...those bass are STRONG!
