Most of us remember the UPS ad campaign “What can brown do for you?”. This morning brown was the popper color of choice, as I caught quite a few bream and bass at the local pond.
It was a good day, with overcast skies and temps in the 60’s. This particular body of water has hardly any lilies, but plenty of grass and fallen trees along the shoreline.
The morning started with a few small bass, and then a string of bream and sunfish.
This was one of the largest and most colorful sunfish of the day.
Then my luck changed, and this healthy pickle began to pull the kayak into deeper water. For a few moments, it felt like a kayak sleigh ride.
All in all, it was a fun and productive couple of hours. The only downside was the condition of the popper at the end of the trip. The pic below shows a new one just above the one I used.
Fishing in the northeast has been fantastic these past few weeks. Hope you have a chance to catch some too. Enjoy!
