Your first fish of 2019

Recommended Posts

Haven't gone out yet in 2019. We're heading back to MO today. May try for some creek micros this week. Planning on heading to Bennett's on Friday. So it will likely be either a darter or a trout😁. Or a sculpin.

Went this morning to a 70 acre lake in IL.  Pulled in to see mud water and the coves were covered in ice.  Water temp in the 30's.  Notta bite.  Weather was nice😀 but I would trade bad weather for a decent bite.  Probably have to head to Taney.

Well, here is my first and only fish so far for 2019.  12" largemouth from Beaver lake.  Fished hard for 5 hours and that guy was it, maybe had 3 other bites that ticked the bait then dropped it right away.  Beautiful day, water looked good, but it had come up about a foot and a half in the last couple of days and maybe that put the fish off.

Had to try out the new fly rod... 2019 first on an olive wooly; picked up a handful more before some midges started to come off and after a number of offerings finally caught a couple on a #20 BWO...went back to a black wooly and picked up a couple more before heading to the house.
