Details:Took off early from work and headed down to Ponki around 4:00. For the first time this year there was no wind and the water was like glass. With the sun shining I could see right down to the bottom of the pond and I watched many a junior bass swim by. The bite was on early. I used my standard white spinner bait and quickly nailed two 15" LMBs about 20 yards out from the lilly pads on the west side of the launch area. Then things slowed. I made my way along the south shore moving west. Lots of short strikes but no hookups. So I decided to work the opposite shore. I've only caught perch over there but I see guys working it almost every time I come here so I figure there must be something worth catching over there. Alas, as usual, nothing. The sun is starting to set, I figured I had about an hour and a half or so before I would have to pull out, so I decided to finish my day up around the island. I began a slow southeasterly paddle trolling my white spinner bait. A few minutes later I had myself a tiny slime dart. He and my spinner bait went back into the water and a few minutes later BAM, something big. I started to reel her in and I can feel there is a fish on the line but she's not budging. I'm actually reeling my boat over to her. Soon I have a 21" pickerel and a glob of weeds in the boat. Take a few photos and back to fishing. I make my way over to Cormorant Rock (that's my name for it anyway). I've never spent much time fishing over here but after a few casts I was able to boat a 14" bass and 18" pick. By this time it was getting late so I landed my boat and chatted up fishing and hiking with three guys on the shore. As I was pulling the yak back to the car my cart broke. The three guys came walking by and helped me carry the yak to my car. Thanks guys.
