spontaneous fishin'

I was going a little crazy sitting at home after finishing most of the crap I had to get done. Figured I'd go take a look at a local lake that I grew up fishing but hadn't been to in a while since there are always greener pastures. Kept it simple. Grabbed one rod, put two lures in my pocket(both the same in case I lost one) and actually found some fish in that dried up mud hole.

Hey Houla,

I was the guy fishing that same hole on Satuday and I saw you on the other side with the dog. :-) I caught three too.

This was just this evening. First time I've fished it in a long time. There was another guy fishing it this eve and we were watching each other from across the lake. Saw a fish hammer his topwater from all the way across the lake.
We met at the parking lot at the end of the session and shared pics. He said something like "well at least you saw it...I was looking down and only heard it." lol
Are you that guy from tonight? Otherwise it wasn't me.
Surprisingly good out there. I also lost a fish shortly after the hit and another came unbuttoned right next to shore while I was watching dude release his topwater fish lol
Oops, then it must have been another guy with a dog. I was fishing on Saturday on the exact same spot that you caught those fish today.

Today I was at Anderson in the rain, and caught only 5 fish. I should have hit other lakes instead. Anderson seems to run a bit late than other lakes.

I am very glad to see the LMB in our backyard lake survived the low water and came into life again.
Nice lookin bass! Looks like it was a good choice to get out.

Thanks for the fish porn.
Outstanding!
Wow, fish are resilient! Thanks for the post houla, I might check this place out this afternoon if time permits.
Ok I got skunked. Not even a bite. Well well.

Oh and the ranger laughed at me.
Now that's the lake I'm used to... lol
What's the story behind the ranger? Just an idiot?
Don't get me wrong, he's alright. He laughed but in respectable way, if you know what I mean. Today I only had an hour and a half, but I'll try to go back before the weekend and give it another try.
