Cold Water Jigging

Hit a few ponds Wednesday with a friend. Still snow on the ground , albeit patchy and melting , so the water was cold , the fish were sluggish , and it was a tough bite. Managed a few bass , a couple crappie , and a handful of bluegills. Between us we might have caught 50 fish or so in a couple of hours. Not bad , but the fish were small. I'll go back once it's warmer. We did survive an attack by two pissed off Canadian Geese , who had a nest with eggs in it about ten feet from where we were fishing at one pond. The drake hissed like a snake , and tried to act otherwise menacing , but they eventually settled down and the hen went back to her eggs.


The Nest
The last person to get this close to the nest...

 Have a great weekend!


  1. Those Canadian Geese can get a little testy. I've been within casting distance in my float tube and almost had to fight them off.

  2. Good to see you out stalking the ponds for some Bass and Bluegill and Crappie. Nice day when they all cooperate with your offerings. Now as far as the geese go.................


Let's hear what YOU have to say...
