View Full Version : A Grand Slam in the pond!

I had the opportunity to fish a large farm pond yesterday afternoon and, although there were a lot of thunderclouds moving through, I was able to fish for about 2 hours between. It was as humid as I can ever remember and a large jug of ice water was soon gone! I had a lot of fun though, as soon as I got there, following one t-storm, the Bream were popping all around. I started with a lime popper, sz. 12, and they bit readily.

I caught them right along for about 45 minutes, along with a couple of Largemouth, before switching over to a green "Clawdad", sz. 10. I should have went a little larger, but, the smaller size turned out good because the Crappie like them.

I caught around 7-8 nice slabs on the Clawdad, while also catching the intended species:

All in all a great time. Caught about 10 LMB, and my little Jack had a good time too, he tried to attack every one I brought in the boat!!http://littleriveroutfitters.com/forum/images/icons/icon10.gif

I love fishing farm ponds. Thanks for the report. Are you in a kayak with a wiener dog?

Thanks! I fish in a Native U12 yak, and thats a Jack Russel (mini). His name is Tao, and if I come home smelling like fish and didn't take him he starts saying bad things about me and running me down!http://littleriveroutfitters.com/forum/images/icons/icon10.gif Matter of fact he does the same thing when he's with me and I miss a hookset or do a long distance release!!
