I had an 8:30pm softball game tonight at the Rec Center of my employer. (I'll leave the name of said employer undisclosed, but I'll tell you that it is a biggish company that is RTP-based). Anyway, there is a little pond at the rec center and I decided to see if there was any fish in it. I brought my spinning rod there for a few pre-game casts.

After about 30 minutes and several baby crappie misses, I got a solid strike on an in-line spinner. Not a monster, but could have swallowed the ones I catch at the Wake Forest Reservoir. :)

curious d-el. I also happen to have a biggish RTP based employer, with a rec center and a little pond... "RTP-based" is throwing me off a bit, but mine definitely has a prominent RTP presence.

Not enough background in your pic to determine if its the same place. Try looking for the first 5 chars of my username on your corporate instant messaging app tomorrow (or now) & see if we're climbing the same corporate ladder (while we're not fishing, of course). There's only so many biggish rtp employers with rec centers, softball fields and ponds. For what its worth, I've tried our pond about 5 times in the last 15 yrs and don't recall ever catching a thing. Good place to drown some stress before driving home tho...

Hope all the casting didn't mess up your swing!

Way to go d-el! I agree, fishing then softball.

I guess it is just the light but that fish looks more like a Snook than a Bass. I wondered if anyone else noticed that.

You know, when I pulled it out of the water, my first thought was "What kind of fish is this??" I wasn't completely convinced that it was a bass. Definitely could be a snook, I've never caught a snook before.
