Daily Routine: Tavistock Farms pond and Area 51

Today was my day off and I had big plans to go hunt that elusive snakehead. I slept in though and changed plans to take the yak close to home out to yesterdays spot and venture to areas not accessible from the bank. I chickened out when I saw some dark clouds when I did a scientific walk outside weather check. So after two false starts my final attempt was to do some pond hopping .Those dark clouds never rain any more than a light sprinkle and the cloud cover made for some good topwater conditions. The first pond we headed for a pond I will call area 51. My brother and I challenged each other to a head to head competition the person who caught the most bass (no minimum size) in a ten minute span received a point. We both down sized our lures in order to catch more fish he used a Heddon Super Spook Jr and me a tiny torpedo/Rebel Pop R . The first round I won 3 to 2 the following rounds we tied 0, 1,2,2,1. A pretty good day of fishing almost catching one every 10 min. None of the fish were over 14 inches but topwater is always fun.

  Our second stop was at Tavistock farms pond. I had only caught one fish from this pond but I had a feeling the quality would be a little better. The first thing I noticed was there were a ton of bluegill and they pecked away at my little jig I was using. We spent about 20 minutes at this pond and were able to land 3 bass and they were all in the 12 to 14 inch range. Maybe next time i hit this pond I will try some larger baits to see if there are some larger ones lurking.
