Hit ACL with JP today and had a great time. If I said we caught at least 50 bass I think I would be under estimating.

The morning started off foggy and overcast so we started the day with surface baits which was a good time! You could see the bass follow or blow up on the baits and I think I needed to wait until the fish got the baits in their mouths before setting the hook.

As the surface bite slowed JP’s bait of choice was a black spinner bait, he smacked them around pretty good on that bait. Mine was a ¼ orange jig had and a pumpkin pepper crawfish or black/recd metal flake jig.

We caught fish everywhere we stopped and at the end of the day JP pointed out my last fish to me and I ended the day with my last of many gorgeous bass.

Hey Bob, what kind of bird is this?

Looks like some type of Sandpiper, member of the Plover family. Pretty common, unlike it's cousin the Piping Plover which is endangered. There are a few Piping Plover nesting areas along the beaches & dunes in Indiana. Neat little bird.

Marc, I had a great time as well it was a pleasure having you along. Bob, I thought we were gonna get the species, genus, phylum and all that good stuff on that bird. Wasn't a standard sandpiper as it didn't have a ring around it's neck. Another great day on the lake.
