Went out this mornin early to a new private pond Ive gotten permission to fish on. the place is awesome looking .Saw many fish movin on top chasin schools of bait fish. Little slow on the bite took an hour or so to get my first hit. It was a hefty bump could not believe i missed him! fished for another hour and a half and blam got a chance at redemption . Set the hook and reeled in this nice 3lber, poor guy looked like the birds got good part of his top dorsal .Scrappy little fellar though. Could have explained the slow bite water is up and clear fish prob scared to come out! Lookin forward to becoming very intimate with this pretty little place gotta figure them out , just gettin started! Gonna go back this afternoon /eve hoping it will warm up outside!!
