Bass fishing has been very hot and cold. Mostly cold.
But when its good, its good!
Bluegills have sometimes hit well, other times not at all.
Crappies have been good in some ponds, especially on the windier days when they seem to congregate on the downwind side of ponds.
Never catch enough of these beautiful Pumpkinseed Sunfish!
My buddy Jay and I flyfished a couple ponds yesterday (3/28). We caught bluegills and crappies at both, and I also caught 2 or 3 bass at the first one.
Biggest crappie I measured was 11.5".
Jay went home, I tried another pond...got SKUNKED.
Went by 2 other ponds that already had anglers fishing, so I kept driving. Tried one more pond (did I mention the town I live in has over 20 public ponds?). Fished for crappies/bluegills, but was blocked by this:
|Carp on Fly|
Based on length and approximate girth measurements and plugging those into a formula....I calculated the weight of this carp to be @ 18.5 lbs. For the first several minutes it was sluggish like it didn't know it was hooked. Then it took off! Long battle, probably around 20 minutes or so. Was so happy (and worn out) to finally land it! Beautiful fish!
