First Bass of The Year

Recommended Posts

Today, Friday, I made a trip to central Illinois for a muskie/largemouth outing. Upper 50's air temp, 50 degree water temps, little to no breeze, overcast skies. Conditions like these are generally favorable for muskies and largemouth, but, fishing was less than great. I did get my first bass of the year, a 15 inch largemouth on a white spinnerbait with a single, Colorado blade. My fishing buddy got a VERY small musky, and 3 "non-scoreable" bass. 

Even if we didn't see many fish, there were a lot of birds on or near the water. 2 eagles, several swans, white pelicans, geese, coots, a few species of ducks, and the trees were filled with song birds.  I wish I'd remembered to bring my camera with the zoom lens. I only had my iPhone so the picture of the swan had to be enlarged more than I'd have liked.

Congrats! I finally got a bass on Friday. I bass fished a rainbow trout (ned rig) the week before. It rained on Saturday night, was still cloudy with a very mild occasional sprinkle and cloudy skies. I threw a spinnerbait into a fairly weedy area and saw a lot of water moving behind my spinnerbait. I went to reel and turns out I hooked into a smaller fish with a larger one following.  I had another that jumped out of the water to get my spinnerbait as well right after it hit a weed but missed the hook.
