Decided to give the pond by Sonic (aka Sonic Pond) a try this evening. Short on time with about an hour to fish, was hoping to hook maybe one or two fish. As it turned out, the bite was good with the Pink Near Deere doing well. Glad to see the fishing fly keeps working!
Caught Bass, Bluegill, and Sunfish using a fast retrieve. Noticed the fish were chasing baitfish in the shallows, so “matching the hatch” went with casts paralleling the shoreline and simulated a frantic baitfish running away.
Lots of fun, even saw a nice size Koi that ignored us and also caught and released a nice size Crappie – easily over 10″ in size!
