Fish woke up


Recommended Posts

At the in-laws pond this weekend and couldn’t buy a bite yesterday morning. Went out in the afternoon and same thing.  Hadn’t tried topwater so I put on a whopper plopper and gave it a try even though it was cloudless and air was getting hot.  Caught 10 bass between 2-3lbs in about 30 min all in the same place on a shallow flat next to a deeper drop off.  Hadn’t had that sort of action in this pond for a long time.  My 9yo daughter told me she really wanted to catch one of the bigger bass in this pond so I went in and told her I had found where all the bass were.  She went out and I cast it out to the flat and handed her the rod and she caught the biggest bass she had ever caught, this 3lber. She was pretty excited as you can see. Then she went on to catch two more 2lbers.
