Small Water Fishing...

Fished a couple of small water bodies yesterday. One was the local VFW Lake and the other was the pond at my cousin Beverly's house. 

Now some one asked me if the VFW was open to fishing again. There is a sign that says no fishing members only. When I was in the country band and played gigs at the hall there regularly I asked the hall manager if I could fish there and he said yes. I do see folks bank fishing there occasionally.  We thought it would be ok to launch the canoe and paddle around a bit. 

The old lake was originally the property of the Long Bell Lumber Company. The lake was called Lufkin Land Mill Pond #2. The property was donated to the VFW in the early 1940s. 

Catch for the day was 2 bream and two small bass. Did not seem to be loaded with fish but there is a nesting group of kindfishers that indicate these birds get enough to eat out of this lake. 

After this trip and no, no one kicjked us out we proceeded to my cousin's pond and I caught this bass. Biggest one for me this year. He took a small top water popper that I paid 83 cents for at a flea market lure store. Only fish we caught. Bigger ones have come from this small pond. 

Small water, big fish. Go fish. Anywhere, all the time.
