Bryant Lake

July 22, 2016

July 9, 2016

A pleasant summer’s day and a beautiful night.  A beautiful night to sneak in some evening fishing on Bryant Lake with my oldest daughter.  Great idea in theory.  Epic fail in reality.  I couldn’t get the motor started.  Dead battery.

Fortunately, Bryant is a relatively small lake so we tootled across to the other side of the bad, the fishing is always better on the other side of the lake, and fished a nice point and drop off.  I was interested to see if the swim jig combination would continue to produce and my first cast to the edge of a dock resulted in a scrappy largemouth bass.  Sneaking around to the backside of the dock I noticed that they had an aerator/circulation machine running and tossed my lure up next to it.  Five feet from the boat a northern pike that was following the swim jig lunged for the bait and bit me off.  Tying on another swim jig I had another pike attack it as well.  The combination works.
