Default 4/12 quarry pond report.

Went out after work with a buddy to a little "secret" quarry pond we found last year and finally got that disgusting skunk scent off of me. Started off throwing a 3/8 oz green Boo jig with a green chigger craw trailer along a drop off with not a single bite. Moved to a Crankin' Rap shallow diver in brown/bone color, nada. Spinner bait, nothing. Finally moved to the far end of the pond where there is a large drop off with a lot of surrounding beds. Moved to my trusty pumpkin/black flake 5" Senko and casted towards a point, fish on! First fish was out of the water a long time while I was fumbling for my pliers, so I threw it back before I could take a picture.




This fish also came on the Texas rigged (weightless) Senko off the drop off near the same point.



Third fish came off the same Senko wacky rigged after the second fish tore it up. Was cruising the the shallow by the drop and I was lucky enough to have my bait just past it, presented it just right and the fool took it. Really dark color on this one.



Finally this girls came on my final cast with a pumpkin Senko, fished just past the drop off.

Fixed the photos, sorry about the orginal goof up.

I know this may seem a little long winded, but I'm attempting to contribute more this year, rather than just leach info.

I had no idea there was fish there. That is rad, nice find. Your secret is safe with me. I wish there was a quarry like that closer to me.

Navy, do you really know where I'm at? You've helped me out before so I'd be happy to tell you the spot via PM. But from what it seems like, it's not in your neck of the nape.

People knock 'em but the Senko always seems to catch fish.

Bubblegum senkos have been the ticket for me.

That pond gets hit hard by some members of another site.

These ponds are pretty good. There is another set of really shallow strip pits near there with much bigger bass. I have caught bass in the range of 5lbs to 8lbs there. Now is the time to go, you can get easily more than 50 there, most all of them above 15in, on shallow running crank baits. Here is a hint: Fire Station.

If you know about them dont say a word!!!!!!!

i believe you, but there are many that wont, and want pics and scale weights (which are not acurate), witch is hard to do when you fish by yourself all the fish start to look the same an arm length away from the camera
