Sunny skies
25 degrees air temp
14 inches of ice
Strong winds 25 mph gusting to 36 mph

Was able to sneak away for an afternoon fishing excursion and had been talking to a local fisher that fishes numbers of ponds in the area. He told me about a pond that is used as a city water supply and not many people realize that there are fish in there.

So loaded the equipment and headed over to this pond and the nice thing is that it is only a couple of miles from my front door. When I arrived there it was true that this kept secret is a secret as there was nobody there the whole afternoon that I was out there. I had some entertainment as the local fire department was doing ice rescue operations and going into the water to do these.



Never being to this pond I started in an area that had some old holes. I drill 20 holes while out there and didn’t locate any activity until the last couple of holes drilled. Earlier in the afternoon I had hooked into a nice bass on T.H.E. Jig and fought it for a while and was able to get it to the bottom of the hole and see it before it made one final lunge and broke my 2 pound line.

I was trying all depths to locate fish and went from 8 feet out to 16 feet and until the last two holes were drilled, was not able to catch anything. The last hole was the greatest reward as it was loaded with crappies and very nice sunfish. The fish were very aggressive and when the Vexilar screen was loaded up, as I was watching the bait fall the fish would always come screaming up to it to attack it.



These fish were very aggressive as the water was 12 feet deep and they were coming to 3 feet under the ice like this was their last meal. I haven’t had this type of action since early winter in the open water and in my kayak. Had to leave when the fishing was getting good as I had other commitments to attend to but the next outing will be back to this pond to try my luck once again.

The baits that were used on this outing were Loby Baits: Mousi and small Maki. The bass that was hooked earlier fell victim to T.H.E. Jig. By having one rod rigged with Loby Baits and the other rigged with T.H.E. Jig I am able to give the fish whatever it is they desire and be able to switch up quickly and get back to catching fish.

Until next time keep your lines wet and take your KIDS out fishing with you.
