Water is starting to warm a little here. Sister and her bunch came in from the frozen north for a visit so I took my brother in law out for a couple hours to the bass ponds.

Pretty slow in the middle of the day but the water is gin clear and we could see them starting to move up into the shallows to sun. Only boated three but I managed a pretty good one. She was returned safely to fight another day. [Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]
Weightless worm with a 4/0 Mustad fished super slow. Brown, green, and motor oil have been the colors the last week or so.

Nice fish! Guessing 5-6# or maybe even a little more? Always fun to fish farm ponds for bass.

No idea on temp, the lake a few miles away was in the low 50s last week. Pond is an old cedar canyon, sand rock with steep sides, hooked her in probably 5’ of water but saw plenty up in 2-3 foot sunning.

The place has two ponds, big cedar canyon had two springs in it and they put a dam downstream of each one back 55-60 years ago. The men who owned/own it never fished and wouldn’t let anyone else, I’m really not sure why they stocked the ponds. The gentleman who owns it now is the son of the man who built the ponds and was a classmate of my grandmother as well as working with my mother for 25 years. He has no grandchildren and has always been like an uncle to me. So I’ve always had unrestricted access to what are probably the best bass ponds in the county.

Years ago he found one washed up on the bank, probably been lying in the edge of the water for half a day or so and the turtles had eaten a spot about the size of a softball out of it’s belly. Even with that missing it was 4oz under the state record at the time. Think it went 13lb 14oz. He had it mounted and it hung in his office for years.

It’s a really neat place that’s very special to me. I bought the little 12’ Lowe a few years ago and leave it pulled up on the bank. Me and my little boy spend a lot of evenings out there in the spring and summer in that little boat.

No snakes out yet and generally not many on that place even in the hot months. Pigs though, killed one last summer with that 2” M15 on the edge of the pond. 158gr SWCs over 5.5gr Unique
