After the previous week's success, I was anxious to return to my favorite little bass pond. Unfortunately, things had cooled way down. I was concerned when I saw that the water had dropped ten degrees down into the upper 50s. Nevertheless, I quickly caught a nice chunk of a bass on a spinnerbait fairly quickly.
I had several quick little taps at the bait, but no hookups. As I reached the far shore I picked up the best fish of the day along a drop in about ten feet of water on a little Lucky Craft Bevy Shad 60 DD.
I kept fishing the area and had more quick taps on the spinnerbait before finally hooking up with the culprit. I had hooked a rainbow planter on a 3/8oz spinnerbait, right through the back behind the head. Crazy bugger. I worked my way up the bank and scored a fish here or there. Most fish were out a little deeper away from the shoreline reeds. Still, I managed a few decent ones on spinnerbaits and soft jerkbaits. I also got some love on a Lucky Craft Slender Pointer 97. I remember losing a really nice one on that bait too.
Nothing too exciting happened really. I caught a fat perch on a small soft jerkbait, the first of the year. I ended up with 33 bass, trout and a perch in my four hours of fishing. Still a decent day, but not like the last.
Total for Trip: 33 largemouth, rainbows and a perch
Total for Year: 581 fish
