11 at my local ponds tonight

I got 11 at my local ponds tonight. Could've done more, maybe, but I forgot to bring a light and the last fish swallowed the hook deep and I had to cut it off. It was too dark to see to tie on another and the moon wasn't high enough in the sky yet to use that :p



None bigger than 6 inches - these ponds that seemed just about devoid of fish 2 years ago are now jammed full of aggressive, small BG and there also seems to have been a bumper crop spawn of LMB this year ; 3-5 inch baby…

Finally got on the water!

I finally got on the water today for the first time in ages, rising at 4:00 for the occasion. Float tube, a couple of fly rods, and one spinning rod preloaded into the minivan the night before, so all I had to do was get in and drive.



The day started off really slow. After paddling from the parking lot area across to where I intended to start prospecting, I had a tiny bass (6 or 7" hit the popper I was trolling from my fly rod as I went. Then, around the point, some hits on a…

Great buying experience!

I just had such a good experience buying a fly rod that I want to give public recognition to Ron at Hook and Hackle (hookhack.com). I ordered a Bug Launcher outfit on Friday night for my daughter and she needed to get it by Friday to take on a trip with her. Ron saw to it that it shipped from TFO's warehouse by expedited shipping and got it here on Thursday! Way to go!



Have yet to try it out, but the Bug Launcher feels great just in my hand. Went with the 7' 4/5 wt as recommended by…

Big BG Hybrid Caught in San Diego

I saw this on the San Diego Union-Tribune fishing report:

"Murray: Kendra Ball, 4.25-pound bluegill-redear sunfish hybrid, crawdad, San Carlos Arm."

Lake Murray, in Suburban San Diego, would be considered a farm pond in some parts of the country, having just 171 surface acres when full. IIRC it has quagga mussels, and the redear are apparently taking advantage. Do BG hybrids have the pharyngeal teeth of redear?

Unfortunately, there was no photo in…

I stumbled across another bluegill fishing site last night that has a lot of nice information. Some of you probably already know about it, but for anyone like me, who didn't:

JB, looks like my family may be hitting Salton Sea this weekends. It's going to get hotter and hotter, and the bites are going to be crazy all the northern loop (much safer to eat than near the Red Hill areas). Go before it gets way too hot (in the 120°).

Thanks jonathon. My kids are grown , and we have long cold winters here in Michigan. You will find time some day,and when you do you will become a fly tying adict no way around it.Have fun and catch lots of fish.

Yea Jonathan, Tell them girls that. Its true the only way to catch one like that is to keep the bait in the water. When we get to the camp or launch the boat shes wettin a hook before we can pull out or start unloading stuff. She keeps a hook in the water and refuses to quit until I crank the boat up and start moving or we run out of bait.

Hi Jonathan, Thanks for your nice comment on my 2 Crappie!! I likewise am envious of all the Monster fish (of all species) which come out of your neck of the woods (California) as well as the rest of the country!! Maybe one day the Mrs and I will have some time to take a long road trip and explore as many different fishing spots across the country as we can!!! I hope so anyway!!! Tight Lines!!!!
