"Get Hooked on New York"

Post-storm bass Details
Name:Post-storm bass
Created By:jcallery89
Details:Checked out Ames Pond again after catching a couple nice bass the night before. Left my office right as it began to POUR, and I was hoping to get out there while it was still raining a little bit to tryout a new spinner.

Fished the same spot from the night before but didn't get any bites with the spinner. Switched to pumpkinseed senko with no luck either.

Moved a little bit to a shallow area with a rocky bottom that extended out about 15 yards from the shore. Tried the spinner again for about 20 minutes with 0 luck. Sun was finally coming out of the clouds and the bugs were feasting on my face so I was ready to go. Thought to myself "when has one last cast ever been a bad idea?" Put the Senko back on and cast about 20-25 yards out where a small patch of lilies were. Let the worm sit for about 2 minutes and saw the line go tight. Hooked a Larry that seemed to quit on life so I thought it was a little guy. Turned out to be another nice 3lber, a little bit fatter than the previous night's.

There are definitely bass still in here, and there are beds all over the place. Could be sunfish beds but it's good to know the fishery is somewhat healthy given the average depth of the pond and the brutal winter we had.

- No I wasn't on a Kayak, just been fishing from the shore this season. Need to get roof racks for my new Rav4 so I can pickup a canoe or something.
