This was a really fun morning. In all honesty, I didnt fish very long. I could only stay out till about 9:30 or so, and I got up early to go hit the lake. I saw on the fishbrain app that there was fishing near me the night before, and decided to go try it out before some responsibilities took up the rest of my day. HAHA Im really glad I did, because I ended up getting 5 bass on a top water popper. One I tied myself. I will show you guys how to tie this in the future if your interested. Its a good pattern, and is really not as difficult as you might think.

But yeah, there were some decent sized bass in that lake, I was really surprised. And they weren’t too hard to catch! Just about 2 hours of fishing and I got 5 of them. In reality, once I found the spots, I only fished for less than an hour. It took a few places to try before I found a few honey holes. But the FishBrain app really did help me find these spots. If I didnt have the FishBrain app, I would not have known there were bass in this lake. And I also probably would not have tried a popper if I didnt see that someone else caught a bass with a popper. If I ever tried fishing the lake without the FishBrain app, I would have tried throwing a few nymphs or small trout dry flies. Possibly a wooly bugger. And maybe I would have caught a bass, but more than likely I would have had a light rod, one to fish for trout with, and might have had trouble bringing the big fighters in!
