First Bass 'o Spring 3-27

Postby minstrel » Mar Fri 27, 2020 5:33 pm

Worked N. Pond today to get the hell out of the house... I've seen people catching bass already but still I wasn't anticipating anything on the senko I started out tossing.

I was proven wrong on literally my second cast:

The four or so hours following? Nuthin :cry: I alternated the senko with like 5 different lures, on my other rod, with no result either. But I can't complain, not sure I've ever caught a March bass before.

There was a portion of the shore by the dam rocks that was swarmed with hundreds of little fish the size of a rat-l-trap. They were just suspended there, like they were in jello or something. So, things are starting to pop!

Even the fish are avoiding crowds. But you're on the board, and a nice one to boot.

I figured for the rest of the year you would stick with that red eye that got you the giant wally :lol:
