got out on the local pond yesterday. was cloudy and cold in the am. cleared and warmed up nicely in the afternoon. bite was slow all day. i managed 4 fish. seemed i would get one, then nothing for an hour and a half and then i would get another. i started by getting a nice suprise with a 25 inch channel cat that was fat as hell on the tip up and roach. little later i got a hit that i missed and let the jiggin rap fall right back down there and got the largie to hit it again. little later i got a snake on the tip up. then before the sun went down i jigged up a decent northern on the jiggin rap. i only missed two or three hits in between. did miss one solid doink. lots of follows that would just disappear. i thought the bite would be better once the weather cleared but it stayed slow. here are the pics.

Water Dog,
Very nice, the pond you're fishing must be of good size to support pike cats and bass.

Great variety of fish. Although it was only four fish it seems like you covered all of the bases. Thanks for sharing!

i guess that it technically is a lake. it isnt very big though. it is one of the smallest bodies of water i fish. they were all taken in about 6 1/2 feet of water. i was parked on the outside of a weed edge / drop off. this lake only gets about 10 feet deep so i wouldnt exactly say they are moving in shallow. they are cruising along the weed edges and feasting on the gills and smaller bait fish. most seem to have a little feedbag on. i think alot of the fish i marked were panfish. i think that the jiggin rap and extra large fathead's head that i was using was too big to get them to bite but they would follow it. they can help attract the bigger fish.
