March pond Trip

Recommended Posts

I stopped to fish with Jeff Howell at his honey hole on my way back to Erie PA from Florida. Jeff's honey hole is 68 acres with a maximum depth of about 32 feet. Beautiful pond with lots of wood & good clarity. It even has a resident eagle which entertained us several times. Just after we got there we saw one of Jeff's buddies with a spawned out 7-14 bass. We only caught smaller bass shallow. After a few hours of searching with jigs, senkos, swim baits, popper, etc I got the idea to try a Depps Balisong deep diver jerk bait which I had just bought to take up to Erie for smallies. I had two with me so we tied them on. Neither one of us had any other deep jerk baits because they didn't fit our preconceived notion of fishing a pond taking limited tackle with us. They worked pretty good.

Dwight, it is great to see you at it again. Seeing you with the energy to hoist your big bass again makes me smile. I am very happy for you and glad you can get back into this again. Great fish as always.

 

Jeff, what the heck man...have you been on a massive diet recently? Goodness man. Congrats on the weight loss. I am in a bit of a diet myself in the moment. Can't wait to join you out there on the pond. (hint hint...jedi mind trick wave - :ph34r:).

 

Awesome trip fellas,

 

Shimmy

Nice! That is a honey hole.

Are those post-spawners? You must still be south?

 

Yes Paul most of the fish were post spawn. We were fishing in northern Mississippi on my way back north to Erie.
