Default Finally got out and got a bass

I haven't fished much due the health issues, but decided to go out with my wife for a couple hours yesterday. I only caught one (15 1/2"), but man it felt nice to fight a fish.
We fished a local pond we used to go to a couple years ago and never saw anyone there.
Yesterday, two DNR guys snuck up on us. We both had licenses so no issues and they were both pretty cool. Just surprised as heck to see them come up to a out of the way suburban subdivision pond. The town homes in the background are models and they've just sat for years. No other homes on the pond. The project just fizzled out I guess.

Nice. Haven't been bass fishing in a few weeks cause the panfishing has been on fire. Hope to hit the bass again this weekend.

That pond looks like it has potential.

Yeah. It just has minimal shore access with all the weeds. Maybe it would be a better spot in the spring, unless I got waders. I'm just not able to stand up for too long at a time and it was too hot to wear my back brace.

No, it was two guys. I was fishing with my wife though if that's what you meant.
