Basic Info

Body of Water: Neighborhood pond (about 5-10 acres) (Del Webb) Richmond, Texas

Date: 4/8/18

Time: 5:00-7:30pm

Air Temp: Mid 50s

Water temp: unknown

Sky: Overcast, misting

Caught: 1 largemouth (about 1 lb)

Notes: So Texas decided to try and ruin fishing yesterday by slamming us with a cold front in the middle of the spawn. When I should've been able to catch fish on topwater, I was forced to resort to alternative methods. Me and my buddy aren't the guys to cancel because of weather, so we decided to test our skills. After what seemed like forever, I finally connected with a healthy 1 pounder on a Blakemore Randy's Swim'n Runner underspin. The pond had a very distinct grass line, and when the underspin reached he edge, it got smoked (about 1 ft and half of water). I missed another fish of similar size in the same way (poor hookset). I've never been so proud to catch a small fish but under these conditions, anything is good. I also managed to get two bites on a jig but failed to connect. Hope this report helps someone out!

It's currently snowing almost whiteout snow here right now at the start of my weekend, dumping snow into our already cold lakes the day before I'll be fishing the next 2 days. You'll get no sympathy from me because your "cold front" killed the topwaters bite 😆
