Spring '10 Reports

Post by RedneckAngler on Sun Mar 07, 2010 10:35 pm

With the weather nearing 60, thought I'd drop a line in my local pond. Been catching some trout in my TMA, but thought I'd try to entice a bass. Water is still COLD, but I figured it couldn't hurt to wet a line. Tried crawling a few crankbaits along with good pauses at various depths, a stickbait or two with long pauses, and a little wacky worm dropping in a few suspected spots with no luck. Water was real clear, so while I didn't catch any fish I was able to check out some structure and bottom features I hadn't seen before. Boat is getting serviced, and I'm chomping at the bit. Have to make due with trout and pickeral 'till things warm up. Once I get the boat back I'll start fishing for some pike and carp. Last year the carp were running in mid/late March. Thinking maybe weathersfield cove in a few weeks.

the early bird catches the worm, eh.............take rna's mindset and always look near where you live...fishing can be a walk away from your front door.

I like Mike Iaconelli's "City Limits Fishing" show on Vs. Shows that you can catch fish just about anywhere if you really want to.

Took my boat out on the pond late last week to try and target a few big bass I'd seen from shore up in the cover at the base of a steep embankment. It was windy as hell and I really had trouble manuevering w/out a foot pedal. Wasn't having much luck w/ the pumpkin football jig or sinko, so I threw one of the few remaining large pond shiners I had left over from fishing w/ Meatloaf. Barely hit the water when the bobber went 2 ft. under. Nice bass close to 3 lbs. Plan to go out again Thursday evening. Going to do a couple mile river float down my TMA or hit Hamburg Cove if the weather is nice Sunday.

If my local is any indication, time to get out and fish. Lots of action, and I've fished primarily spinners and especially the Bass Pro Humpin Toad or the Strike King rage toads in pumpkin. Haven't really pulled out the tubes or Senkos in my back yard as I'm fishing real shallow in lots of grass and the place is crawlin' with frogs.
