Pond Report 2/12

Postby FishinMatt » Feb Mon 12, 2007 3:02 pm

Hit up the pond with Mark, Glen, and Augie. As Mark and I were waiting for them to show, we drilled a few holes and caught around 10 or so dink bass on jiggin raps and just a plain hook and fathead. After the latecomers arrived we got some tip-up action going and it was steady, but not great. The highlight had to be Mark spotting a fish on the vex right after he drilled the hole suspended down 5 feet in 10 feet of water. He handlined a roach from a tipup down 5 feet and was instantly greeted with a 2 lb. bass. Those vex's are kinda cool. I'll post some pics later, right now I am dealing with a broke furnace :x

Right now I am still in the tag-a-long phase. I own no equipment of my own :P I have been jonesing to get out with him though. Hopefully some ice out crappies at LITH soon :wink: I'll put the pictures up when my hands stop shaking. Right now the house is sitting at 51 degrees, but it feels much colder then that. I'm waiting for a part that should get here around lunch time for the furnace.

The furnace is back online, so my hands have thawed out enough to type.

Medium shiners on tipups about a foot off the bottom. Lots of them tripped the flag and just sat there with the bait. Hopefully when the weather stabalizes they will get a little more frisky.

Nice job Matt! It looks like your getting hooked... I could see you hitting the sale at the end of the season for some ice gear.

If you're fishing slow and not catching anything, fish slower.
