Fished the private pond with my friend today. All I can say is that the fishing was slow. Caught a bunch of dinks. I lost 3 big fish as I was lifting them out of the water. :oops: One the line broke, one the hook pulled out of his mouth and one wrapped the line around a metal pole. I did manage these ones though.





All of the fish that we caught were caught on Zoom lizards and Zoom Trick Worms. :wink: The light bite continues.

I know that I should have lipped them, but............it's hard to see from the pic, but I was standing on a platform that is out over the water. It is about 4 feet above the water, making it hard to lip them. I should have had braided line or have brought a net along. :oops: Next time..................

Nice fish Tim. I usually lip them but sometimes my line will break when I have the fish's head out of the water and I'm going to grab them.

Next time I'm out I am going to buy a smaller net along with some Trick Worms. :wink:

Hey Doc :!: From the looks of the place that you were fishing at, shouldn't the butler be netting your fish for you. :D
:lol: Actually Al, the place that we were fishing has two ponds. One is bigger that we normally fish. This one is smaller and is used as a swimming pool. Obviously there are some big bass in that swimming pool. :D
