I had a rare late afternoon to myself. I really wanted to take my favorite baitcaster out, so I grabbed it and jig and went to my favorite pond. First cast and I had a strong hit but failed to hook up. Maybe ten more with no luck, and I moved to the dock. First cast was perfect and had a hit while the jig was dropping. A few more cast then moved on. Threw a few down the bank caught one more and missed another. They were 13 14 inches, but not bad for a quick 30 minutes after dark.
