Quick trips to two ponds this past Easter Sunday - Sonic Pond and the Lower Pond at Bethany Lakes. Caught a couple of Bass using the Guadalupana and the PMOT - Purple Marabou Orange Thing. Did have a nice one on the line briefly but lost it. Overall, great time fishing on a real nice day!

By mainlake I mean the entire south half of the lake. Shallow water near shore, in coves, sloughs, etc. I wade or float tube mostly so I stay close to shore. Although some experts say there are always more crappie schooling up out in that deep water all year long, even during the Spring spawn.

Where is the mainlake shallow?  I thought the mainlake was 30'-40' deep.

I hardly find time or energy or reasonable fishing conditions to fish much anymore but I went last Saturday afternoon and did okay. Didn't even try shallow since lake was 2 1\2 feet above normal and the gates were open and I figured fish would be scattered. Kinda windy too. Fished 7'-10' midlake , brought home 15. Fish were very healthy and not many dinks. One female had well developed eggs, other eggs were not even yellow yet, or maybe they are working on their second batch. Mainlake shallow oughta be good almost till Memorial Day.
How bout ya'll? Doing any good?

Crappie or sandbass?

Was trying to catch fish at Kroger park, specifically, Bass using the Tube Popper Fly that worked well at Stoney Hollow Pond. Switched to a Damsel Fly Variant when it did not work, then switched back to the Tube Popper Fly. No luck there, so went with a Guadalupana... it worked. Do check out the video for tips and an idea on the retrieve we used when working the Guadalupana. Liked the fishing fly but did lose two Bass that threw the hook out after the initial hook set. Decided to tie Guadalupanas to replace the one lost this trip. Then, decided to give away two of them instead of the Near Deere Give Away for this month!

Fly fishing for bass at a local pond using the Guadalupana. Did well last round; same held true this round! Bass were in their beds or cruising the shallows. Also, caught several Bluegill. Fun times on a really nice day; even better to be fishing and catching them on the fly!

Here is a quick tie demo of how we tie the Guadalupana. Uses minimal material, and is simple to tie. Works on trout, bass, and bluegill. Do give it a try, and do keep guessing on our Fishing Fly Give Away of two Guadalupana fishing flies.

One tied with a Palmer Hackle. Other with a Dry Fly Hackle. Both on size 8 streamer hooks. See more and comment in our video posted on our YouTube Channel!

Finally got the video edited... it's the DIY Tube Popper Fly that we used the other day at Stoney Hollow Pond.  The version we used at the pond was painted yellow. These are painted white. Also, used the Mini-Balsa Wood Lathe we made several years ago along with a tube tying attachment on an old vise we keep just for making tube flies. Lathe is not required, can be shaped by had using hand tools and sand paper. Do check it out and give it a try fishing them on your local ponds this Season! DIY Tube Popper Fly

It's a variant of the original Tube Popper Fly we posted in an article several years ago...Tube Popper Fly
