Bass Buggin'

Bass Buggin' a Local Pond

Last night my youngest son and I were able to break away for a little bit of bass bugging on a local pond. It was his first taste of bass on the surface, and I think he may be hooked.

1st Bass on the surface!


They were hungry for the last 2 hours of daylight, and we were able to coax up a half dozen fish. The Soup-de-jour was a longtime pattern of mine, the "Long Standard".

Even the Bluegill came out to play!

His biggest fish of the day. 


For me, it was guide duty armed with a full lanyard, box of flies and some casting assistance. The fish did the rest.
