First of the season
Like Martin said recently work has been kicking my butt. I have managed to get out a couple times for a few hours each, but so far have come away without much to say as far as the fishing. We've had a very wet and cold Spring season.
This past weekend, I got to spend a day floating around on a lake chasing pike and bass. NY has recently changed its regulations regarding bass and it is now possible to chase them in the spring on a C&R basis. This is the first smallmouth bass I have landed in a couple years, and hopefully not the last. I plan on finding some new smallmouth haunts in the stream near home this summer.
I had forgotten how strongly these fish fight. It as if they want to tear the rod right out of your hand. Amazing creatures, these smallmouth bass.
