I decided on the Pit Pond as it is so close to home. I really didn't care where I was going, just so long as I was going! I almost didn't go as there were severe thunder storms predicted. But I needed to go fishing.
The Pit Pond was in prime condition. I got on the water and noted that the temperature was 80 degrees. Perfect! I also noticed that the frogs were singing loudly. And there seemed to be more than I ever remembered.
Then it began. I started throwing top water lures at the edges. The strikes were immediate and aggressive! I had never seen them so aggressive before. And the fights were awesome! It was as if they were powered with shark strength!
30 online that put up the good fight and got away.
Countless strikes that missed the hook.
This was in just under three hours. It comes out to a Bass on the hook every three to four minutes!
As predicted the storm rolled in and ran me off the water. If not for the storm I imagine the numbers would have been even more incredible. I am angry at myself for not taking camera gear with me. Lesson learned. But all in all it was an awesome experience!
