I have been trying my best to try to hit the ponds lately despite the amount of work I have doing lately. I really would like to get myself up the mountain and hit some trout but when I only have an hour or two free between trips and housework, the trout are just going to have to wait.
It also seems like the bass want to wait. I have not been getting much luck lately. It was only a week or so ago that I finally got a hit on my line when a big bluegill took a #1 frog imitation but the bass seem to still be sleeping. That is until the other day when this young bass darted from the dark shadow of a log and snatched up my red headed rabbit strip streamer. It wasn't a big guy but it was still a bass and my first of the year. It was also the only hit I was lucky to get in the two hours I fished.
