i decided to do a hail mary and hit a pond on the way home that ive been to many times before,at sundown with topwater. i started with a mini buzz jet, nothing so i switched to a sexy dawg. (walk the dawg style bait) nothing at first but the last area i hit, i caught one.
this fish hit twice, before i hooked up. i paused the bait and BAMMM!!!! FISH ON!! this was the highlight of the day besides having lunch at one of my favorite bars down there

perch honey hole
2/20/2016 - 2/21/2016

went out saturday, wanted to fish one of my favorite spots but that was still completely locked, so i went to check out a new pond. it was lot windier then i expected and didnt dress warm enough. first cast on the Real Prey perch caught a little guy, nothing big but caught the first 5 largmouths of the year at the new spot.

sunday went to a pond that ive fished at before. i fished jerkbaits,jigs, swimbaits and glides and got nothing so i switched up to a blade. blades work very good here. i caught a 2.2lbs yellow and a 3.3lbs largemouth.
on the way home i decided to check out another pond. ive been here once years ago but my buddy was being a pain in the ass, cuz he gets bored to quickly when fishing, so he was f***in around with fire crackers. didnt catch fish that day. well i checked it out again. i wanted to see if theres any bass in here. fished the sunny side of the pond, so the water was warmed up a little. caught 4 dink bass on jigs and my first pickerel of the year. glad to know theres fish here, now lets see if theres any biggons.

my favorite trout spot

went to NH this past week for skiing. brought up my yak, im usually ice fishing this lake during this trip. saturday was the last good day, low 40s calm and sunny! the rest of the week was cold and snowy. first time in the yak here and ive only gone trout fishing here. i decided to go for bass! no bass not even a nibble. fished the whole lake for bass. decided to switch up to trout.
they were only hitting inline spinners. im sure they would of hit spoons and small jerkbaits but i had a rod with 10lb mono i used for finesse lure for bass! so i wasnt rigged up for trout!

south valley
so our plan was to fish a new pond. we bushed whacked our way through woods. the ice looked sketchy but we wanted to check it anyways. i had the rope ready while my buddy ventured out. while standing in the marshy shoreline. the ice gave way and fell in.
we didnt fish this pond.

we packed up hit a new pond. THANK GOD WE DID! had 15 traps outs. 4 inches of ice. we smoked em.
5 minutes in not even set up the spread yet, i had 2 flags 1 screaming run but it drop the bait.
15 minutes in we had 5 fish. all bass. this area slowed. so we had the spread out even more. across the pond.

my buddy kept his traps in the first area, while my other buddy and i spread out across the pond.

i hooked into A SLOB! i set one way out with the biggest shiner i had. flag went up. SCREAMING!!! i grab the line. fish is in a log. i feel the fish thumping but my line was stuck. after 10 minutes it drops the bait. i was pumped more then sad. cuz that was an awesome fish.

tons more flags. at noon. the bite died down. i was hungry so i went to get lunch and beers. i get a text saying you hooked into a monster. i hurry back, they didnt land the fish, i pick it up, its stuck in the same damn stump! AHHH!!!! i felt the fish, but it was stuck. i broke the line on that. chaffed off! the 30lbs dracon ice line broke!

i had a flag up, i was running to it, my buddy yells over says you got another. he asked if he could get it, he lands a 5lbser. while i lost my fish.

chasing flags all day. 6 dozen shiners. 40 fish caught. all bass and 2 huge perch, no pickerel or crappies. we lost 40 fish to

went to outer banks last april. awesome time. fishing was slow

i was hopping to get some reds and sea trout but water was only 50 degrees. i wish i brought my freshwater gear.

found a small pond near the house we were staying at. caught a few nice bass nothing huge. luckily it was warm so i could wade. had only light tackle saltwater. the heddon spooks were the hot lure and a gold redfish chatter bait.

caught a few bass biggest 2.5lbs. missed a huge bass that smoked a red head zara spook.. took me into some trees. the tree was next to me. i was thinking of going swiming for it but i dont know what kinds of turtles and snakes live here.
saw a huge gar come up after my spook. never had the fish, as it missed the bait.
i drove 20 miles to a fish peir a few times. the big skates were bitting good, but i wanted a new fish. a few days later i finaly caught some puffer fish.

these fish were really cool. they made a weird noise when you caught them. you had to rub their belly to blow em up.
