One Week Later By Jer Ridout

One week ago, I found myself disappointed in the world of fishing. One week later, I find myself to be a lot more satisfied. Of course, the weather is still in the 70’s, and it’s really starting to show an effect. Reports in southern Iowa say that the Bluegill are starting to spawn, and this is MARCH! Usually a Bluegill spawns in May, the fish think it’s May due to this weather, and they are HITTING! It was just Sunday, March 25, and I found myself bored, I did everything else other than fish this weekend, so of course, I had to give it a shot at a pond in Marshalltown. First I tried some Bluegill fishing, and the Gills were lighting it up, and was extremely fun with my Ultralite pole! After I hooked around 12 Bluegills (ranging anywhere from 5-8 inches) I tried to get my first Largemouth Bass of 2012. SUCCESS! Jigging my Producto worm, this one hit like a freight train to say the least. 12 inches was the size, but it made me feel a lot better, and took this monkey off my back to get that first Bass of the year. If you thought this article was interesting, this was just an appetizer compared to what I’ve got planned for next weekend! Oh boy, I am pumped for some fishing!!!
