Fishing the White River

I had a chance to slip away and do a short float trip with my neighbor Josh on April 24th.  Josh struck first with his 1st smallmouth for the 2016 season!  All up all in we landed and released over 20 fat rock bass and a few smallmouth.  Both of us had long distance releases on a couple of nice smallies; we'll be back hunting for them soon!  I was happy to be back on the oars!

Spring Bass bite is turning up!

IMG_2573Cecil had an opportunity to slip his leash the other day; in fact, he left the dinner table to go and fish!  Fishing in and out of rain storms, he landed over 30 largemouth that were feeding on minnows.  Here's just one of the fish he fooled!

If you look close at the following picture, you'll see one of the unlucky minnows!IMG_2574
