Bass Brunch--Fluke or Fact
I again chose the Streetman pond, and seeing as I had about 30-40 minutes in which to fish, I neglected the northern and eastern shores. I fished along the western shore as I headed south, and in the southwestern corner, I had a hit. Immediately afterwards, the fellow jumped out of the water. Talk about rubbing salt in some wounds. I fished the area again but with no luck. I was fishing from about 40 feet from the bank. I hit many spots along the southern bank, and fished pretty heavily where I caught Friday's fish. No luck, though. The wind blew from the northwest, so I let it push my tube easterly. About 15 feet from where I caught Friday's Largemouth Bass, Bam! FishOn. I didn't set the hook really well though, and in his mid-air jump, he threw my fly off. It could have easily been the same fish from Friday. I continued to let the wind blow me to the southeastern corner with no other bites, but I was content that I had a fish take the fly.
Seeing as I had been on the water since 3:50, it was time to come off and head home for veal and a clam bake. I love this field testing and will be trying out a different water body a little later in the week. Hopefully, I will be like the Rangers' Kinsler and Cruz--3 days, 3 hits, 3 home runs, baby!
