Early morning fishing

I woke up early this morning and went to a lake at a local public park to kill some time before taking the boy to school. I was using a 7wt. TFO rod and a little black popper. The crappie is 6"-8" long, I'm not big on crappie fishing, and the bass is about a foot or so long. Not to bad for 45 min. of playing around.

It's been awhile, 5 months since my last blog (this almost sounds like confession), back in June the wife, the boy, and I went to Dollywood/Pigon Forge and the national park up there for vacation. The only fish that we caught were ugly little things that the locals called Knotheads.
The summer has been so hot that all the Bass and Brim (Bream) are deep and hard to catch. The temps are only now starting to come down some so I think it is time to do some early morning/late evening golf course and farm pond fishing. My son is playing football for his school (7th grade) and the city rec. team league so time has become a premium.
