Do you love big bluegill?
Today was a very cool day for July in Alabama. I was not able to co fish this morning before work, but I was lucky and able to fish for a few hours this afternoon after work. So I went to Old Camp Crosby Lake to try to catch a few fish. This lake I have found very hard to fish since it is so heavily fished. All that I have ever caught here is a bunch of 2 to 3 inch bluegill and bass, but today I found out that a Shakespeare ultra light rod and reel with 4 lb line does not hold up to what I think was a large mouth bass.
I was fishing a tree that was layed down in the water and was just about to move and I made that famous last cast and soon as the hook hit the water it hit it and started pulling drag. The down fall was that the line was to light and the fish went under the tree and I tried to pull it back to me and that was all it took, the line snapped. Yeah I know this is one of those epic fish stories but that is fishing I guess.
Here is a picture of the lake, there will be more posts of this lake because I have seen many fish in this lake but just have not figured out how to get them to bite yet.
