We are all creatures of habit, so when my alarm clock went off at 5:15 this Good Friday morning I just couldn’t believe that I had set it, knowing that I didn’t have to go in to work today. Well, after tossing and turning for about a half hour I realized that I wasn’t going back to sleep. So I took the 2-block walk down to the neighborhood lake to do some fishing before my wife woke up. The morning was quiet and beautiful. It’s so pretty down here during the spring and the Louisiana Irises are in full regal beauty!
I missed an early strike due to poor positioning of my kayak but I was able to land my first bass of the morning about 15 minutes into my paddle on a fire-tiger popper.
It was a good start and measured 13 inches. A short while later, I caught bass number 2 at 14 inches.
After another missed strike, I picked up my big bass of the season at 18.75 inches, pretty close to a personal best on the fly rod. It weighed in at 3.43 lbs!
I was truly blessed to be able to enjoy the beauty that God provides. The Canada geese are on their nests now and are very protective. I did manage one on the GoPro though 🙂
