Full of Rain

There has been so much rain this year I'm afraid there will be bass in the Evans front yard soon. The lake is now full and the fish are surely having a great time in the deeper holes and plentiful cover.

I was able to catch the last 30 minutes of daylight after services on Sunday evening.

I tied on a BGW and began tickling the shoreline. I hooked up on a small 12 incher and performed a neat C&R move without even getting slime on my hands. Next, I had a bigger fish blow up on the worm right at my feet as I lifted it up out of the water.

A few minutes later I was able to tease him to take the worm but I rushed the hookset and he spit the hook after about a five second fight.

Finally, I placed a sweet cast along the wall and a fat largemouth gobbled up the offering and headed for the middle of the lake. I let him run for a 10-count before "crossing his eyeballs".

This 18 incher put up a decent fight and made the evening worthwhile.
