Went out yesterday. I decided against Hoover since I didn't have the gas and stopped by Wolfe Park on Alum. The current was pretty fast so I decided against fishing it. I then went to Three Creeks park pond. There were a lot of people there. I stayed for 2 hours, and though I saw a lot of activity in the water, I didn't see one fish pulled from anyone. Not even from those using live bait. I was only equipped to river fish as I only took what I thought was necessary to do so: my yozuri, a wee craw, a few twisters with 1/32 and 1/16 oz jigs, a few inlines, a buzzbait, and some 3 inch tubes. I used all except the tubes. It was frustrating as I saw so many fish jumping and breaking the surface. Being new to pond fishing (and new to lure fishing in general), I have yet to experience success at a pond. I walked the entire pond and casted, switching lures when I felt it necessary. The one thing that I did learn is that once one ties on a buzzbait, it may serve one best to commit to throwing it. At one point, I had the buzzbait tied on, casted about 30-40 times and after no hits at all, switched to jig and twister. Not long after that, the surface activity increased drastically. I casted the jig a few more times and then decided to tie the buzzbait back on. Apparently that may have been too late because almost as soon as I tied it back on, all the activity ceased. I'm not sure that surface activity equates to a better bite on the buzzbait, but logically it would seem so. Anyway, I keep learning and I keep going. I won't stop. Hopefully soon I'll have my first pond fish, but I don't mind saying that it's frustrating though considering that it appears to be popular opinion that fish can be caught easier from ponds. Not that that's the reason I fish ponds, I just fish them when I feel like I don't have any other options. Ultimately, I suspect the key to success at pond fishing, as with fishing any other body of water, is merely to put the time in. Thus, I will continue to do so. To those that care to hear about my progress, hopefully I'll have something with more substance in my next report.
