Largemouth Bass in Shallow Water
For a couple of weeks I've been watching them in the pond in the park. They come into the shallows this time of year to spawn, but I'm not certain at what stage of the process they're in now. Although they have generally disregarded flies I've cast in their area, I caught one the day before yesterday who put up a good fight for his size which was about a foot which is about the average size I've been seeing. He leaped twice which is something I always like to see. Even when I'm not fooling any bass, there are invariably bluegills that I hook. Actually, I've done much more looking than fishing lately.
The fish aren't the only animals reproducing right now.
