Small Pond

I bought an inflatable boat the other day to try to get out after some of the bigger fish that I'm guessing are away from the shoreline here in August. (really shallow pond, maybe 4 acres, a couple of 7 foot holes, but mostly about 3-5 feet. Been catching a TON of tiny 'gills, redear and yellow perch on the shoreline).

I spent a whole day out on the pond in my little boat. Fished downed limbs, submerged points, and the deepest holes I could find with ice jigs tipped with worm and…

Military Appreciation Day

Hi folks! I'm posting this blog in the hopes that some of the members of BBG.Com will help get the word out about this event. So...what is Military Appreciation Day (MAD)?

To start off, I caught this gorgeous fish with a chartreuse/black tube on…

Catch it when you can!

With the weather warm for a few days but a cold front settling in (again), I decided to get out on the leading edge of the front and see about some fish. Slow bite (The front got to the fish before I did) but the quality of fish was MUCH better than it has been. Glad I got my 'fix' cause it looks like no more fishing til at least Saturday.

Bass Saves the Day

So my son and I have decided on our new house...the one that I will retire from the Army in. And of course, I need to find the best Chinese takeout, pizza delivery, grocery store, and fishing spot within a few minutes of the new house. I keep going back to this particular pond that has given me a few nice 'gills and one baby bass so far.…
