The last week or so has kept me fairly busy but that doesn't mean I haven't had time to break away every so often to do a little pond fishing. Taking my kids to some local ponds we were lucky enough to hit them at the right times and at the right temperatures. The bass and bluegills have been aggressive and eager to bit and I even managed to sneak in a crappie or two with the fly rod.
Hooking into some eager bass, a few dozen sunfish, and a crappie or two in a few short hours might not be a true grand slam but it does relieve that itch to catch fish. It also has the added benefit of entertaining the kids for an afternoon while creating memories that will last for a lot longer.
