I spent a very disappointing weekend fishing the AEP. The numbers and size were WAY down from the spring. Now, 5 inches of rain, and the ponds looking like chocolate milk did not help! Also, they seem to be working on a road that is close to one of my favorite ponds. The pond is now completely devoid of vegetation and apparently the bass are gone as well! Oh well, I did scout a few ponds for the spring. Only 8 more months until my spring AEP trip!
