Heading To Double Secret Pond

Recommended Posts

I have been helping my wife since April 24 through two hip and one back surgery plus all of the associated pain. She had a hip replacement on October 18 and she is doing much better with the majority of pain going away and leaving only the weak muscle and the wound pain.

I have missed two tournaments and the stress factor has been at 100%. Yesterday she told me that she can get out of bed and hit the bathroom plus walk around the house with a walker so she wants me to hit my Double Secret Pond before the hurricane hits Virginia on Sunday through next week.

I did manage to make the "Meet and Greet" at Lake Anna when one of her book club friends stayed with her the entire day. But you can't infringe on others all the time so I continued to be the primary care giver.

Add in the stress of running your own company during this period of weak economic conditions and you can understand that I am all stressed out.

I took all of my tackle and rods/reels that I had ready for the Pamunkey River tournament that I missed and put it in the SUV and I am ready to roll at 5:30AM this morning to hit the pond. Should be fun with the water temperatures and barometric pressure dropping plus the rain and wind picking up.

I will let you all know how I did in light of Hurricane Sandy heading up the coast and the cold front heading towards Richmond, Virginia.

I really need to do some fishing before I go more nuts!!!!

Thanks, BassinLou. Just finished moving furniture, umbrellas, plastic chairs and all of the Halloween stuff out of the yard and from the deck.

I got to the pond at 7:15 and started throwing a RICO. Great action and lots of small bass. After the sixth one I decided to see if they wanted any plastics.

They clobbered the wacky rigged senkos. One every other cast.

I then switched to a PB&J football jig and pig and landed the 8 pound lady and her 7 pound friend. Also caught a number of smaller bass on the jig and pit.

Decided to go with a spinnerbait and the bass went crazy over the chart/white gold Colorado blade presentation. Caught another 7 pounder and a number of 2 pounders.

Caught three on a sexy shad crankbait but was picking up too much bottom gunk so I retired that one after eight casts.

Overall I caught over 60 bass in three and a half hours.

The wind was whipping around from the east around 15 miles per hour which put a wonderful chop on the water. Great for the RICO and spinnerbait.

Had a nice time at the Double Secret Pond. May return durnig the winter months if the temperatures cooperate.

Glad to see you were able to go out Sam.

P.S. No wonder it's a "double secret" location. (Just funning around. I'm sure you're good enough to catch numbers and size anywhere.)

Awesome day indeed! Perhaps you could tie a hospital bed to the bumper of your SUV and trailer your wife along so you can get out more often, LMAO. Seems like you were rewarded well for all your hard work.
