Working the Weeds

I got out and hit the weeds yesterday in search of whatever I could find. I had a 9, 8, and 4 weight rigged and ready with me. So many panfish kicking around right now. Constant action with those guys. Some big bass are out and about too. A few of those bass are still guarding babies. Pretty late for sure.

The big action came with bowfin. I love how they just sneak up to the canoe stealthily. But then they hammer the fly and go nuts! Awesome fish! 

The most fun fight of the day was the 14 1/2 inch bullhead that I sight fished with a small carp fly.
That thing hammered the fly then got the reel singing for a few seconds. Pretty nice bend in the rod too. Cats are 
pretty phenomenal. Can't wait to get into a big channel cat this summer! It is on the list...

  1. Awesome stuff man, I have never heard of a bullhead on a fly, but why not right. I catch catfish all the time on the fly so why not bullhead. Congrats on the fish and thanks for sharing.
