Yeah, so I was trapped at my Parent's house for the weekend, with my daughter. NO YAK FISHING AT ALL. Was planning on trying to scoot down to the Hooch and try for shoalies w/ my daughters yak, a 6ft pelican open top....would have been hairy so I decided against it, especially since they released water from the Oliver Dam upriver and I couldn't fish. That little yak is very unstable. So I cheated on the Ocmulgee with my Dad's pond, but as I said....I am not ashamed for I had fun and caught a few small to medium largemouth and was able to break in new poles. Got a new 6ft medium spinning rod that your pointer and thumb actually touch the blank of the rod....super sensitive. I was tossing my rapala slash xrap....the small fat one in black with silver sides and some red along with red/white feather like material on the back hook like a pop r. The fish would swat at it right next to the bank and I would have to do a figure 8 w/ my pole and let that rapala nearly sit still and they would come back and crush it! My biggest followed a shakyhead jig/green pumpkin worm in and missed it, so I did the same thing as with the rapala and did a figure 8 with my rod and a bass a little over 2lbs came back and grabbed the worm. The water temp had to be crazy high because as you can see the pond isn't very large. Started throwing that famous "paw paw" black buzzbait and caught five more but won't put that many pics in the story. Sorry to all you dedicated riverbasser's, if I hurt your feelings, I do apologize. Happy Fishing All!
Just under 2lb largemouth.
The Just over 2lb largemouth caught on worm
