Went to the stripmines with my buddy today. Hit the water about 1:30 pm and fished til dark. First pond didnt do too well in only caught 2 apiece. Moved on to another pond not too far away about 5 and ended up with an easy total of 30+. Most of the fish were "keepers" about a pound or so. Only took one home because it was deeply hooked and wouldnt have lived. Caught most of em on 4" purple power worms, but they were hitting buzzbaits pretty well right before dark. Looks like things are finally turning on up there. Blessings!!!!!
