Great Memorial Day At The Pond

Recommended Posts

Theres a pond locally thats not managed or stocked,has some fish in it and occasionally he water gets really low.

Been hitting that pond with a Rapala X-Rap (XRO4)Its basically an Ultralight X-Rap.

Hooked up one one fish,nothing special,just a dink about 8-10 inches long.

Had one area where I casted,and had a good fish (Maybe 2.5-3#) follow all the way to the bank. Fish hit it just as I was ready to pull it out of the water. Came unbuttoned :(

Continued in the same area and maybe 5 casts later had the same thing happen,at the same exact spot.Again the fish came unbuttoned :( Likely the same fish.

More than likely because I just wasnt ready for a strike that close to the bank.

A couple of people were fishing an area on the other side,upon leaving,I decided to take their spot.

About 2 or 3 Casts later,I hooked and released this healthy fatty.

After that I only hooked into one more fish,that struck right at the bank again.Of course as I wasnt prepared,it came unbuttoned. That fish was easily larger than the one pictured.

What is it with the fish following my jerkbait to the bank...Is that common?

When your bait is almost at the bank, the bass has it's would-be meal pinned against the shore; strikes right at the boat are quite common for big swimbaits especially.
