Put some new line on the ultra light and tied on one of the crappie jigs I bought down in Florida and headed to the pond this evening. Didn't stay long, but managed a little crappie and slab gill. Thought I had a bass on when I was reeling in that bluegill!
Blitz didn't like the idea of catch and release and tried to retrieve both fish.

Nice job Troy! Glad to see you're getting out and getting after them a little bit I'm ready for ice to be done up here. I've had my fill of the hardwater this year. I know you'll find this hard to believe but a buddy of mine went fishing on Saturday and he said there was still 12"-14" of ice still on the lakes. The only problem now is the edges are starting to get really soft.
As I was getting Blitz out for some exercise last night Chase was headed down to the pond with a tiny brush hog tied on. He managed to get a "bass thumb" but they were running pretty small. Been a while since we caught any big bass out of there, I hope they're still swimming!
