70 Degrees in December!

When I saw the weather report a few days ago, I knew I HAD to do some fishing!  High of 73 in December, love it!
I decided to hit a small pond in our next door county.  I had fished there a few weeks ago and managed a few small bass and crappie.

I only fished from the bank and caught 12 crappie, 2 small bass and a tiny bream.  Not a bad for a few hours and I loved every minute of it.  I caught most of them using a 1/8 oz Road Runner jig with a pink tube trailer.  This is a great little crappie rig and even bass like them.  I like it in cold water because you can absolutely crawl them along, most fish are moving a little slow in December so I like something I can fish slow.

Been a long time...

Never fear...I HAVE NOT stopped fishing!  An extremely busy summer at work and at home put a damper on my blogging.
I will post a few sccess stories from the summer.  The first being a trip to the New River in southwest Virginia with my nephew.
We left early and drove up to Foster Falls where we put the kayaks in.  We floated about 4 miles down the river with frequent stops at promising fishing spots and to eat some lunch.  I managed to land 14 smallmouth bass and missed another 6 that I really should have gotten into the boat!
I was using Texas-rigged crawdads and pumpkin green 5" senko style worms.  An awesome trip in one of the most beautiful places I know of!  The picture is of my nephew Chance in his 10 foot Pescador.
