Springfield 6/22/12

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Fished Springfield yesterday afternoon for about 4 hours. Caught several largemouth (I think 8 total) with the biggest being 20 inches. Caught all on crankbaits and green pumpkin finesse worms. The fish hit the baits hard all night. We also caught several large redear and bluegill on the cricket style crankbaits.

I have also noted how much shad there seems to be in the lake. I know the lake has a very healthy population anyways, but the fry from this years hatch are amazing to me. Barring a super bad cold snap this winter, we should have some great fishing over the next few years due to this enormous amount of forage.

Till next time, tight lines.

There is certainly something in angling that tends to produce a serenity of the mind. ~Washington Irving
