I walked out back for 20 to 30 minute fishing sessions here and there over the course of the weekend. I ended up catching six fish! For me, that is great. Here is some proof:
The first catch only took me 3-4 casts. My nephew helped out on this one. It was just a little thing. Turns out that most of the fish I would catch were this size.
|Nephew and I with the first catch of the weekend. I caught all my fish on green rubber lizards. The bass in the pond were koo koo for that lure.|
The next fish was the largest of the weekend. It was probably about 10 inches. Unfortunately, it had swallowed my lure.
|Trying to dig out that lure.|
Alas, I could not get the lure out. The fish was belly up shortly after.
Here was the third catch of the weekend.
|5 of the 6 I caught were basically this size.|
I probably fished for no more than 2 hours total. I got 6 fish and way more bites. I think the lizard was definitely attracting them, but it probably was a bit large for the smaller fish to chomp down on. All in all it was good practice on setting the hook right away on a hard hit or, if I felt a nibble, waiting slightly and then setting the hook.
Hopefully, there will be more fishing in the coming weeks. Have any of you been out fishing yet? Thanks for stopping by.
