A bunch of friends and I got together to do some fishing and grilling out. We had a great turn out and fishing wasnt bad either. Gills and Crops where popping all morning. Bite shut down around noonish so we fired up the grill and had some bacon wrapped venision, steak and brats. It was my first time trying venision and boy was it good.
Apparently after our bellies were full so where the fishes cause the bite died. The fish would chase the jig on the drop but wouldnt commit. I was unsure if I was reading the vex correctly but upon asking some of my more experienced colleagues they confirmed that they were getting the same. All the gills where healthy and fat I dont think I saw a dink gill all day. This lake/pond has been known to produce some 5lb LMB, big cats and 2lb+ crappies, but this was the biggest crop of the day.
