Went to a private pond this evening. I tend to lean toward rubber worms and usually do well with them at this pond. Almost two hours and not a bite. Of course, during that time I removed about 30 blue gills from my kids hooks. The six year old caught 18 and the twelve year old 12. I finally switched to a buzz bait at about 8 o'clock. Forty-five minutes later a pissed off bass nailed it. I love catching bass on topwater! Walking back to the truck, I decided to throw it the whole way. Caught one more and missed a few. I even had a few gills going after it.
