A Sunny Break In The Rain

A "Sunny" Start


With the previous week bringing rain and cooler weather, this mornings calm winds and sun felt like the chance to shed the shack-nasties. 


Finding the lake clear but cool and water high on the banks, I knew it may be a slow morning. After the first 30 minutes and not even a short rise, my fears became reality. 


With fish found in isolated pockets along the shore, though it took some searching, persistence paid off eventually.


After 3 hours of hard hunting, a few really nice fish came to hand (like the big hen above), but no double-digits would be had.

The highlight  of the day however, was the largest Pumpkinseed of the year so far that stole the show. 

Love the colors!
