dem bass ate real good

Click to enlarge all.

I caught this rock bass just for MB Pell.




Then I caught this portly smallmouth just for me.





This fish took the rabbit fur fly I made earlier. I guess it's closest to a sculpin in the water, but I'm happy to just call it an attractor pattern.

That's a pretty nice fish for a river this small.




But that's what Indiana Catch and Release* regs will do for you I suppose.



*Some Indiana rivers do have regulations actually designed to improve the catch and release fishery, for example Sugar Creek has a 1 fish 20" or larger regulation and the Blue River has a slot regulation, something like keep no fish between 10" and 15". I just hope my favorite little river is never deemed unpolluted.

I guess there's a flip side to most everything.

That rock bass shore is purdy!

I agree about the rock Bass Daniel. Some people, on the other hand, think they are a trash fish.

Also, regarding a previous comment, I haven't got the new boat yet. Trust me, when it arrives there will be a complete photo expose here on the blag.
