The last mid-week day of my fishcation. That river is hopping right now man. Stuck exclusively to the main stem from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm. 1/8th oz jig with a 4" Gulp minnow did all of the work. Oddly, the 3" variety of the bait didn't earn a sniff, even from dinks. The average size of the largemouth I've been catching may be the best I've personally experienced.

More red eye bass.

And yellow mud bass.

And my PB Dupe cat, although I lost a bigger one early this year as a matter of fact.

I like fuzzballs and icky spiders.

And I'm pretty good at making friends. This dude parked on my hand while he was munching on something.

I had a great view of a bald eagle as well. This is the second time I've seen one on this stretch and have spotted them as far north as 87th street. Unfortunately it was mid flight so no good photo opp.

Nice way to end it. Just an FYI, that 1" gulp does wonders on crappie and gills should desire to start chasing trophy fish... :winker

Thanks for the report and we all here appreciate the time you take to post the pictures. I know first hand.

:thanks guys!

Yeah WSJ, I actually expected to run into some crappies today but no such luck. They do winter in the area.

Damn, jmdog, there will be no fish left to catch by the time I get out there. The knees have been keeping me homebound to some extent. This fellow is happy for you; you write a good story. Gotta get a fly rod in your hand to see what you can do.
