This morning I had Mom take me down to the boathouse to fish around 5:45 a.m. so I could try to catch a fish during the last hour of one of the excellent activity windows today. I started with a black spinner and just fishing with the sunrise view listening to a rooster was good enough for me.
Around 6:30 a.m. I decided to switch to my last non-black spinner. The second or third cast with it I ended up catching a bass. I had not brought the basket down since I didn't really expect to catch anything as I have tried during the peak times five times over the past week. Thus, I called Mom who initially thought I was just asking for her to come get me earlier than the 6:45 we had agreed on, but instead I needed her to bring the basket.
The bass is just barely the minimum 15 inches to keep, but we now have Easter dinner.
