Crappie With A Fly
The other day we rolled up on this remote pond as the sun was cutting through the deep morning fog. I took this pic of the morning light cresting the pines and if you look closely you can see my buddy on the bank tying up a top water lure. He eventually ended up with a frustrating goose egg for a fish count. I on the other hand managed to hook into a good six fish but only landed a pair of crappie - both of which were a striking silver color which leads me to believe that the water has been warmer than normal this winter. Both fish were caught on a woolly bugger made from Hareline UV Ice Dubbing and a rabbit strip tail.
Either way, a bad day at the pond is always better than a good day at work. We headed back home with our heads held high and the hope that the next time we hit the pond we will have more hook-ups than we can handle.
