    Default Sun ? What Sun ?


    Weather prediction was for the sun to make an appearance around 11 this morning.
    I got to the Town pond around 10:30 and it was overcast and 49 degrees . The wind didn’t help , although it wasn’t a constant wind , when it blew , it felt like 39 degrees .
    I was determined and hopeful the sun would could out and the fishing would improve over yesterday.
    Well , the sun peeked out around noon for less than two minutes and again the last five minutes before I left at 12:30 . The time I should’ve been arriving, but if you want to fish you go when you can .
    I took my St Croix 6’6” light action Premier paired with a 1000 Daiwa Fuego LT .
    I fished a trout magnet under a float for 95% of the time and caught one shellcracker, one small bluegill and one small bass about 11-12” .
    Better than yesterday .

    Thanks , the bass and the shellcracker gave a good battle on the 6’6” light power , fast action rod .
    I’ve found I need to go to a light action rod when fishing over 6’ to get the same feel and bend . Ultralight rods over six feet get a little whippy and don’t cast as good .
    Although I do own a couple Daiwa 7’ ultralights that are a little faster than this 6’6” light .
    Every manufacturer has its own way of measuring the action and power .

    Oh , the sun came out when I got home.
    It’s 62 and sunny at the moment.
    Just got home from taking my wife out to eat , for her birthday.
    First time we’ve eaten out since Covid .

    Ive got an 8’ 3” Yamaga Blanks Blue Current TZ UL that is rigid as a broom stick. I rarely use it but I can tell you it would make a fantastic vertical jigging rod for crappie or bluegill.
