I flyfished a couple local public ponds with my buddy Jay this weekend. The first pond provided the most excitement. I caught 5 species: Crappies, Pumpkinseed Sunfish, Hybrid Sunfish, Bluegills, and Largemouth Bass.
Couple of exciting things happened. First, I was flyfishing a corner of the pond near an intersection of roads with stoplights. The two cars over my shoulder in the picture collided just a couple minutes before this picture of a 16.5" bass was taken.
About 15 minutes later, I hooked a bluegill, and a bass attacked it as I was bringing it in to shore. I was able to land the bass, it measured 21.75"!!
Then I visited a young pond....probably just a couple years old, and this is the first time I've ever fished it. I caught a lot of Hybrid Sunfish, small Largemouth Bass and Bluegills.
Had to watch out for the nesting Canadian Geese!
