I took my girls up the Wykle pond to do a little bluegill fishing before summer completely slips away. We used the traditional worms and a bobber approach and the girls caught several fish each before giving into playing with the worms, bugs, and grass. It was a nice afternoon diversion and the girls had fun.

My cousin Jack and I floated for the point to the high school in Derrick's Jackson Big Tuna. We floated from 6 to 10am. The Tuna did great even in rougher water down at Tug creek. We rounded up 23 smallies and lost several more all on G-tails. It was a fun morning and I think Jack had a good time rounding up smallies and a couple big redeyes. I was really impressed with how well the Big Tuna fishes with 2 people in it. Jackson makes a heck of a yak.

I fished the South Branch of the Potomac right on the Grant/Hardy County line under perfect conditions this morning from 6 to 9am. It was cool and overcast with water rising from storms that passed the night before. I fished in line spinners and rounded up 56 total fish. About 6 river gills and the rest were smallmouths save one fallfish. My best numbers day in a while for bass, but they were mostly little. I had 6 fish of good size betoween 1lbs and 2.5lbs. I didn't take a camera this day although, because my waterproof one died and I didn't want to fall while wading and loose either my phone or another camera. I have not been fish much as of late due to the heat and my lack of fishing. I have been shooting my bow, shooting skeet, and spending some time getting ready for hunting season in the coming months.
