Ponds are finally bug free...

The dreaded Buffalo biting gnats seem to have finally petered out with their quest to eat me... 

Been hitting the ponds a bit with some moderate success.  My buddy has access to a pond up 61 that is just full of massive panfish and some really aggressive angry bass.  The bass hit like a freight train and you better be holding on.  This little gem never gets fished at all so you can throw whatever and they'll eat it.

I also got my buddy on a fly rod for the first time and the pan fish cooperated by just slamming a hopper on just about every cast.  I think I made another fly fisherman on that outing lol.  They were hitting a stripped @BilletHead clouser hard too!

All fishes lived to fight another day.  We're heading back up tomorrow evening to break in a few new fly rods lol.  Biggest bass was right under 6lbs and biggest pan fish was almost 11 inches and weight 3/4 of a pound on the dot. 

Buddy had a small Gill hooked on the fly rod and about a 4lb bass tried to eat him.  Was a cool thing to see. Good times indeed.

Looks like an awesome pond buddy! Great fish and report! That's my kind of fishing!

My largest bass in Georgia came by way of catching a small bluegill with my fly rod that go inhaled by the bass. Pond was only 1/4 acre in size, but connected to three other similar sized ponds.

Blue Gill, sunfish, long ears, hybrid, bream, they're all just gills to me lol.  

I think John did say they were sunfish.  All I know is that they are a blast to catch on the long rod.  Even more so when they are hitting top water.

Wait -- I'm not sure you deserve credit for that bass. You caught a bluegill, but the bluegill caught the bass :D
