well i got my workout for an hour throwing a swimbait, not a single nibble. then switched over to a jig and it was game on! this was the biggest one i caught, didn't feel like getting out the scale but that's my size 13 romeo next to it so i guess it was an alright size, alittle bigger than average?

THEN I found one of FPs 20 dollar swimbaits that he lost in January! the water is ridiculously clear and i managed to rescue it off the bottom with a little creative thinking...

and finally i got a new app for my phone and wanted to take a panorama picture of the pond and how calm it is (new at panorama that's why the picture looks like crap)

My poor swimbait that K-9 caught more fish than any others Ive fished looks pretty hammered faded busted tail :(:( wild you were able to find it considering we joked about it . I actually topwatered one tonight 3 ft off shore it was an inch shorter than my bait of confidence , kinda cool though missed him the first time drug it right back through and when he grabbed the tail i flipped him out onto the bank wasn't even hooked my friend laughed his *** off.

the swimmer was only about 4 feet deep and i managed to wrap my line around it about 4 or 5 times and pull it up slowly, lost it about 5 times. it's super soft too so the tail broke :( the whole rock pile in the back corner was CRAWLING with fish, i'd never seen so many in one spot before i just cruzed over that whole area back there for 2 hours or so and lost track of how many i got to take my jig, didn't even think of using the crawdad! i bet that'd have worked too. let me know if your son can make it or not saturday if not, ill find somone else to come along w/ us

Nice. I saw a guy pull a HUGE lm out of the inlet area to what remains of delta ponds tonight. Seems like the warmer temps may have increased activity. They were topwater fishing. Unfortunately, they had a stringer of good sized fish flopping around on the ground...kinda unfortunate considering what has happened to that place

Crap. Sorry to hijack. Got me thinking about bass lol

Yeah :( the one looked to be an 8 pound or so female full of eggs, poor little future baby bass didn't have a chance.
