Mark P Posted June 2, 2008 Report Share Posted June 2, 2008 Went to a small detention pond in my subdivision to fish for some gill's with my son. Brought my 3wt and fished a 5x tippet along with a #16 Griffith's Indicator Gnat. Caught a gill on every cast. Saw some movement to my left about 2' off the bank. Cast the fly, which sunk and started a long slow strip and out of nowhere comes a 3.5lb largemouth that inhales it. He rushed it with his mouth wide open... Caught and released despite the barbless hook. Went home got a bigger rod and threw an intermediate ghost tip with a #6 Chewbacca Bugger and landed a bunch in the 1-2 lb. range and another #3. When some people saw me release the 3's and asked why, I told them they'll be 5 lbs. next year. They have alot of forage to feed on. Think I'll try some surface patterns tonite... The pond is about a 30 second walk from my front door. Mark Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
