This past Friday was my scheduled day off, so what better way to spend it than on the water right? See, we do think alike!! :lol: :lol:

Weather was promising given the time of year, but sub-40 temps in the early morning will make you question your sanity at the least. I made up my mind, waited for the sun to crest the horizon and made the short trip to a hidden gem that I frequent at least a couple times a year.

Here's the summary:

Air temps - 39 at launch peaking at 51 on the day (forecast), slight breeze
Water temps - hovering at 50
Combos - three total (one casting with a double willow gold bladed SB; one casting with a square billed CB, and a a spinning setup with a PTL Craw D'oeuvre and a CB Draggin' Head)
Water clarity - murky with lots of submerged leaves
Water depths - pond was down two', but depths were 2-4' across the whole pond

Two total strikes, one landed.
Best bass - 19.75" LMB caught on the PTL Craw D'oeuvre (Deep Melon Pepper)

Full story can be found here:
