So I went out early Saturday up to a pond in the neighborhood where I grew up. Second cast I caught this one. I could have swore It would have broken the 5lb mark for me making it my new PB. But it weighed 4.7. Everyone I showed said it looks bigger than that as I am a pretty big guy. 6 2 about 200 pounders. But the scale doesn't lie! (or does it Pretty big for around these parts.
After that I caught 3 more ranging from 3.2-3.6 lbs and a couple probably hovering around 2 lbs. It was a great day, It didn't seem to matter what I threw they would eat it. I love days like that.
The water was pretty dirty, and I thought I wouldn't have much luck but it was the complete opposite. They were all up in pretty shallow water except 2 of them. I wonder if the muddy water had something to do with why they were up so shallow. The pond is pretty large and would be excellent for a kayak or canoe. So there is much deeper water Where I would assume they would be this time of the year. Shows how much I know!
Anyways just wanted to share my excitement. I went out with my Father as it was the day before fathers day, he makes fun of me because I turn into a little boy when I catch a big on. Jumping around hooting and hollering.
