Name:7-19-2015: Tully River - Long pond
Created By:fdw9652
Details:Departed home at 0415 this morning and launch the kayak into Tully River at 0500. Headed North toward Long Pond. Caught 3 Pickerel, 2 Largemouth Bass and a Crappie today. Caught them all in the river and had no bites in Long Pond. First Pickerel smoked my hollow body frog. He was a good size, but nothing special. Threw my frog into some tree branches that were sticking out of the water. My 20lb test braid line was over a limb when the bass killed my frog. I set the hook and had him pinned to the other side of the branch. I kept his face pinned to the branch and he wiggled and came over the top, then I pulled him in. Second bass missed my frog so I picked up my spinning rod with my grub on it and threw right back to the same spot. Bass killed my grub.
Paddled back to Long Pond, fished and got nothing. It was pretty out there. The fog was lifting and the sun was trying to break through the clouds. There wasn't another soul out there. Otters were making sure I knew this was their pond, slamming their tales in the water everytime they submerged.
Started paddling back toward the river and worked a few places on the way back. When I got to the South side of the beaver damn, I hooked into a pretty big Pickerel. May even be my personal best Pickerel!! It ate my KVD 5" Caffeine Shad swimbait.

I was there Tuesday and had several good hits at those same trees but didn't land anything.

Sounds like a nice trip. I need to try one of those early morning fishing trips sometime, sounds so peaceful.
