Fresh Bugs, Friday Fish

Fresh Bugs


Closing out the workday as all day rain seemed to be dissipating, Hopes were a fresh set of bugs would be the ticket for some post-rain warmwater. Figuring anything stream fed would be off-color, and not wanting to be caught in a tube should storms return,  I headed for the nearest pond. 



The Big gills seemed to prefer the Gurgling Wog


The bass were on the feed as well. as the rain came to a stop.



But the big bulls seemed to be the most aggressive on the night. 

The evenings highlight however, was a 20 plus inch Pickerel attacking a 6" bluegill I had hooked. Taking both the fish, and my Wog as I was reaching to land it. Helluva fight while it lasted.

See you on the water!
