Thurs Afternoon, Amazing Time

Recommended Posts

I went out to my favorite pond thursday from 4-8.  I managed to catch around 30 bass and missed around 8 of them.  Caught a couple on paddle tail swimbaits, jerk baits, spinnerbaits, but most were from a Senko texas rigged and weightless.  There were times where I would change out a senko and throw it in the water and go to adjust my reel and a fish would have it in its mouth already.  It was insane.  I could throw to a pile of timber and call a bite.  I had a lot break off in the timber before I switched to heavier braid.  Biggest was 4 lbs with several 2 and 3 lber's in there as well.  I will post pictures later.

 

*Note- i normally don't keep fish but the pond owner wanted me to keep fish that were around 1 lb or less, so I kept 8 of them.

Wow, nice catch. I just can't bring myself

to keep any fish, LOL. I'm a softie for the 

scaled creatures. But if I had to, I would.

Yea I am the exact same way.  They told me to throw them on the bank if I didn't want to keep them.  No way I could do that.  I understand why they want smaller fish gone everynow and then but there isn't enough people to fish it to do the dirty work other than me.

Those are the days that keep us coming back for more, even after weeks of slow fishing. Those are magical days for sure. Congrats buddy!

Congrats!! sounds like a good time. I don't like killing bass too, but you want to keep the owner happy so you can always go back

Nice job! Don't feel bad about keeping fish. One of the ponds I could fish could really use that and I may have to do it at some point. It's a private pond, I'm about the only one who fishes it (with occasional visitors), and the owners don't care about it because they're busy keeping up with funerals (it's a cemetery pond). The only thing they use it for is looks. Because of that, it has a ton of small bass and about 4-5 big (4+) fish.

Looks like a good day. I don't like eating fish, but a pond like that certainly needs some fish removed from it once in awhile. I usually just look for the 12-15 inch range fish and keep all those unless I get one that looks particularly healthy, those are spared in hopes they're a future monster in the early stages. I know lots of people that like to eat fish, so giving them away is never an issue.
