Easter Bass

Just a short note about a couple of bass from this afternoon.

The weather stabilized and it looks like another week of washouts ahead, so I walked across the street at 4:30 this afternoon to fish the subdivision pond. This is the pond that usually frustrates me but holds some good fish. I've finally figured out one pretty sure thing about the pond - when the water pours into it, the bass move to the inflow. Its really the only time I can consistently catch anything here.

The water wasn't at a high point today but it was still moving in pretty good. The fish I caught were tight to the inflow. Both came on a small swim jig, and I missed another one. OK for a half hour. Both the bass were nice and chunky - around 15-16".

Swim jigs are becoming pretty popular, I'm going to have to try one some day.

Now get back inside, it's going to rain again.

Not all of us get a chance to walk across the street and catch 15 - 16" Bass any day, let alone on Easter Sunday. I am jealous.

That is fantastic! Quality buckets on the holiday. Well done.

We just had a bit of rain, so I think we might hit our neighborhood ponds too. They get a lot of pressure, but you never know. Glad you got to sneak in a bit of fishing on the holiday.

Would sure like to have a "neighborhood" pond instead of that little puddle down below the house. Nice Bass.

A neighborhood pond would be the end of my whatever life I have left in the house!!! But, I'm glad that you enjoyed!!!
