Still doing the baby shuttle service & spending time fishing.
Tuesday I hit Potawatomi Pond again. Walked around the pond throwing a buzzbait. Landed 3 decent bass. The 1st one was the biggest (probably 2 lbs.) but the 2nd one put up the best fight.
After lunch I drove to Beck. No fish. Talked with a guy fishing with worms who said he's been catching a lot of catfish recently. Some 'gills too but no bass. It was hot so I went back to Potawatomi for the shade.
Wednesday - 3 more decent bass on a buzzbait at Potawatomi again. None as big as Tuesday's 1st. All were good fighters.
This has been my year for gear failure. 1st I broke my favorite rod at Busse. On Wednesday my reel - a Lew's Laser ACR - crapped out. I've had this reel for a number of years but have used it intermittently. The bail spring broke & now the bail just sort of flops around. Too bad - it's pretty light. Doesn't seem Lew's made this model for very long so I'm thinking there were other problems with it. Maybe ACR stands for 'A Crappy Reel'
. Ordered a Daiwa Regal to replace it.
Watch out for what you wish for. All Wed. AM I kept hoping it would cloud over to improve the fishing. Got my wish in the afternoon. It clouded over & started raining. Oh well.
Thursday - sat in a FP shelter for most of the AM waiting for it to stop pouring. Then I went to Potawatomi & fished for a little more than an hour. No fish & it got beastly hot out in the sun so I pulled a bag chair out of my car & sat in the shade.
All-in-all a good week of fishing.

Keep calm and fish on...
There's a fine line between fishing and just sitting there looking stupid
