damselfly bite

Recommended Posts

This past Wednesday I was out on a lake where a portion of it has flooded cattails in around 5 feet of water.  My friend and I had observed damselflies flitting about and occasionally there would be a splash on the waters film.  If  we could cast to and reach the ring (or close to it) with our soft plastics, we often caught a bass.  I noticed that in one of the bass's mouth there was a damselfly.  Not surprising, considering the obvious connection, but we also noticed that when there was a breeze, the damselflies wouldn't fly and the splashes were less common.  In fact, if it was breezy, the bass stopped biting almost altogether.  I wouldn't have guess that the occasional insect "snack" would affect an entire feeding pattern.  I had thought this more likely for trout but apparently on some days the bass react the same way.  I find it fascinating.

That is intersting. I noticed damsel files a couple weeks ago and got some midday bites on topwaters. But only when a cloud came over. When the sun was out, that bite was over.

The pond I fished last night was smooth as glass. I used only topwaters. The owner said when the wind picks up, nothing will bite. But I never take anyone's word for it. I take it into consideration, but I have to see for myself. I guess I should have been from Mizzurah.
