Got to the WWD around 2:45 pm. Partly cloudy skies and the air temp was 58 degrees. There were about 10 other fishermen there when I arrived. One guy was catching tons of little crappies and keeping them. :?

Anyway, I manage to catch 12 LMB in about 90 minutes along with a few panfish using minnows. It amazes me how some fishermen don't practice good fishing etiquette. Two of the bass that I caught had hooks hanging out of their mouths that I removed. One of them was a 3/0 EWG that was sticking out of the fish's mouth over an inch!

if i knew you went that late i would have met you there too haha... Yeah, a lot of them do not have good fishing etiquette. I saw some high school kids catching bass yesterday on the other side of where i was standing and they were just playing with it on the ground. I even heard one of their girlfriends yell, "it's suffocating!" Kind of pissed me off, but what could i do when i'm out numbered by 4 guys :p
