Wacky with a chance of Storms

On a rare occasion there are more than a couple DA pro-staffers free to get out an talk about the site and fish.  When the guys got to my house a fresh storm was just hitting our neighborhood. We sat in the garage and talked about the site and watched the radar on the computer. The rain let up and we were out the door for an afternoon of pond hopping. The first couple ponds were new to me and there is always that new water excitement. We got out of Wacky’s truck and with a couple claps of thunder we were back in. lol We waited a few minutes and were of to the races. The day showed great promise as all three of us scored a bass pretty quickly. I think two of the fish were caught on Big Hammer and mine was on a spinner bait. The promise of a great day was kept even though a couple of the ponds did not produce. The last pond was the hottest and looked to be past the spawn. Finesse plastics seemed to do the trick. There was a continuous line of weeds around the pond on the edges where gills were gathering. The bass as Wacky say were not far behind. The fishing heated up so much that we didn’t have much time to talk about the site. It was a blast. Fishing with a couple of good friend is always a good time. You forget the troubles of life because you have to think of comebacks as your buddies’ raz you. For example, every time I caught a small bass DarkStar would say “another gill nice job” and Wacky kept comparing me to short characters from TV shows. But I caught the most…lol Most of my fish came on either a 4inch power worm or a Case Helgie.  After I was home for a while I went and hit a couple more ponds and caught 5 more. My biggest came last just before dark on spinner bait. Total fish counting my evening run had to push forty. I finished the day with 28. A GREAT DAY!!!
