Morning Bass

Morning Bass


This morning happened....and at 5:30 I was having a serious discussion with Parkinsons. It wasn't cooperating, it wasn't playing nice, and I was not going to get any more sleep. 


SO...I went fishing.

First Bass of the Morning





The fish were feeding from dawn until about 8:30, but all of about the same cookie-cutter size. They were slashing and cutting minnows, and I was able to get them to take a Black Gurgler with a fair amount of success. 



There was no hesitation on the take and they put on the show. Then when the sun began to heat up.....they stopped. But that worked because I was shutting down at 9:00 either way. When I got out of the water, my feet still hurt....but I had caught well over a dozen fish on the surface. A fair trade in exchange for not being able to sleep.
