So frustrated by a writing project, and I decided to go out. I went to the Hudson river shore nearby my apartment. Last season, I caught my first bass April 2nd. So, what can I expect? I fished for nothing on drop shot rig for 30 minutes under bright spring sun. It was not that cold. Surprisingly, water was not that murky. Smell of river was so refreshing. I could not notice any baitfish activity. This time of year, crawfish must be main diet of bass. Sorry, no fish today. I hope to get one soon. Thanks to warm weather, I expect to catch one by the end of March.
Ah, I saw Weekly Circular from Dick's Sporting Goods. They offer discount for all reels: $5 off for $10-30, $10 off for $30-60, and so on. What a good deal! I was thinking to buy a small reel for my ultra light rod. You may want to check out, too. Shimano and reels with price ending .97 are excluded (tricky part!). I will look at Quantum.
