We want doughnuts

October 12, 2012

September 12, 2012

Wednesday night and the kids are craving doughnuts for breakfast.

Hmmm…maybe I could stop by Bush Lake on the way to the store.  It gets light about 6:15 a.m. I could fish for and hour, be to the store by 7:30 a.m., back home before 7:45 and to work by 8:30 a.m.  Sounds like a plan.

The first cast is made about 6:17 a.m., a few minutes late, and I fish fast as I don’t have too much time.  I must be fishing too fast because nothing munches on my buzz bait until I let it pause briefly.  Falling just below the surface, a fourteen inch bass nabs it just as I start to reel it back in.  Taking that as a sign that they want something slower, I switch to a willow leaf spinner bait bulged just underneath the surface.  Working it back from between some vegetation something swirls on it and I strike and miss. Things are picking up I tell myself.  Several casts later I nab this hefty large mouth bass (sorry about the blurry photo).


One more bass and two northern pike later it’s time to get the doughnuts.
