Went to check out Minto brown Park for the first time yesterday. It looked like some prime bass water. I saw about four big fish jumping. I think they were carp. There also was a lot of minnows swimming in the shallows. I was surprised to see that already. Anyways I threw out a panther martin for about 15 mins. and was surprised to catch 2 little bass.

I caught a couple small bass on a spinner saturday. Also caught a ton of bluegill and little trout, also a couple crappie. Fished Medco Pond for the first time only used spinners :)

BTW. What spinners do you reccomend for bass?

I googled Medco pond. I wish I was closer. It's awesome when you can catch so many different fish in one day. Sounds like an sweet spot.
