Hit two bodies of water yesterday. First part of the day was at a small pond. I used the Hydros 7wt slinging a hair bug popper and also my small profile soft plastics spinning combo. I used a June Bug colored finesse worm due to the murkiness of the water. The water temps were in the high 80's, so fish were holding tight to any cover that provided shade.
The second part of the day was dedicated to the HOW outing at Bear Creek State Park. The winds were blowing pretty strong and constantly shifting which made positioning the kayak a tad more difficult. A long day for sure but productive nonetheless. The one down side to the day was not being able to get my veteran on fish during his time on the water. He is a frequent participant at these outings, so I know he'll have more chances in the future, but it was still a bummer for me personally.
We ended the day with a cook out style dinner with burgers, cole slaw, potato salad, chips and drinks. A great way to spend the day, but we are left wanting another day on the water.
I landed 13 fish in total in 8 hours - most were cookie cutter spunks measuring in at 14". Two measured in at 15" with some shoulders to them and the largest barely ticked 16", but at least I had 1 fish that was Kayak Wars eligible
