Gone Fishin'

Saturday morning I got up around 6:00, loaded up the boat and headed to the lake to do a little bass fishing.  What you have here, is a little bass.  A very little bass.  The lure is only about four inches long including the hook and feather.  Thankfully, this was the smallest fish I caught this morning.  Well, to be honest,  you can't get much smaller than this little fellow.  I did catch four others.  One weighed around three pounds.  The other three were barely keepers, although I practice catch and release when it comes to bass.  When it comes to crappie, I practice catch 'em and eat 'em. 
It was a good morning.  The wind came up and made it hard to keep the boat in the right position, so I came home around 11:00.  Spring is here and summer is just around the corner.  There will be a lot more of this activity in the days ahead.  Just wait until I go and do some big bass fishing.


  1. Congrats on getting out to go fishing. Any fish would be good for me right now. Enjoy the days to come.

  2. We went to our boat in Thursday to ready it for our trip to Rio Vista this weekend and a couple of guys on a fishing boat was in our harbor getting ready to release their tournament catches. They had caught 38 pounds of wide/large mouth bass. The largest one was 13 pounds. It was huge.

    Have a terrific day and I know you'll enjoy your bass fishing as the weather gets better. :)

  3. Oooo--fishing!! Love it. A common phrase at our house is "Fish On! Fish On!" We'll be heading up to Kansas soon to do some fishing in Papa's pond!

    Oh--and I knew I would love your blog because the first thing I saw was the photo and the Angry Birds!! Love me some Angry Birds!

  4. I miss fishing. It might be small be you still caught it.
