Fish Of A Life Time.


Recommended Posts

It seems as if this was the weekend for big bass. Due to other commitments this weekend, CD and I didn't get a chance to float but, we did wake very early Sunday and headed to an MDC CA in Barton county for a little early morning fishing. With the full moon saturday night, I wanted to fish all night but, wasn't able to pull it off. So CD and I got up early sunday and headed out with the moon so bright, it was casting our shadow.

So after an hours drive, we got to our first spot just as daylight was creeping over the prairie horizon. We had disturbed the fun of a herd of deer as we got there and they told us about it. As we walked the 1/3 of mile hike to our first spot, they made it very apperant with their weezing. We also scattered one of the largest covey of quail I had seen since I was CD's age. There was at least 25-30 birds. How beautiful the sound of them calling each other to regroup as we began fishing.

We started tossing our jitterbugs in eager anticipation. CD had a birds nest very quickly. After fixing that, I watch his casting as he had it happen again. I told him he was casting too hard and to let the rod do the work. He did and things started to smooth out.

Fishing was not has hot has I thought it would be. I picked up a couple of dinks in the pound and half range. CD had yet to score and I was ready to move to another area. I told him to hit one last spot. And here is his result.
