Sometimes you catch the big one

Recommended Posts

... and sometimes you don't!

My son got a big kick out of this dink he caught today. We each caught three fish, but nothing over a pound even though we fished spots where we normally land 2 -5 pounders just about all of the time. But it was still nice to get out and fish for a few hours. The good news is that historically things really start to pick up here in the next two weeks.

 

The only bad part about today was I lost two lipless cranks and one spinnerbait. I didn't lose that many lures all of last year. But I found out that the community disposed of a lot of Christmas trees in some of the lagoons over the winter and since I did not snag in these spots last year I'll assume that's what I snagged on today. The perils of bank fishing! I'll have to bring out the iBobber next time and see if I can map out the bottom of these lagoons.

Nothing wrong with catching dinks. They're fish too! 

 

I fish a couple small private ponds pretty often during the warm months after work. They're over populated so the average bass is about 8-10". Yum dinger worms (the 3" ones) rigged weightless with an offset worm hook catches them by the dozens. Catches some of the big bluegill too.

Everyone has to start somewhere. Time on the water with family is better than time off the water without. Catching a small bass is better than not catching anything at all. We don't always get to choose the cards we want, sometimes we have to make the most out of the ones that we are dealt.
