Numbers on Saturday

Recommended Posts

Yesterday morning I decided to try some ponds that aren't too far from my house. 

Got out on pond #1 about 6:30 AM, temp was 45 degrees, no wind, and overcast.  Almost immediately I got a small one on a shallow running crankbait.  I decided to try jigs and plastics to see if the larger ones were on the bottom, but got no bites at all.  Went back to using the shallow running crankbait after that.  The overcast cleared up about 9:00 AM, and so did the bite on crankbaits.  Ended up with 6 small bass, with the largest being about 1 pound.

 

Pond #2 had a fish kill about 3 years ago and I don't think it has quite come back yet.  The sky was partly cloudy, and the wind picked up a little from the NE.  The temp shot up to 55 degrees.  I only managed to catch one small bass on a 2" swimbait after about an hour of fishing. 

 

By the time I got to pond #3 the wind was blowing about 10 mph.  Since the crankbait bite died off I started out with the 2" swimbait on a 1/8 once jighead.  I started fishing the side of the pond that was getting hit with the wind.  I'm not sure if they were spawning there, or just stacked up because of the wind, but by the time I went home for lunch I had 5 more bass with the largest one being about 3/4 pound.
