Finally decided to fish from my (10 foot aluminum jon boat) this a.m. I got to Newburgh Lake at 8 a.m. decided to use my top water weedless frog. cast past some ...more lily pads, hopped the frog onto one, waited about a minute, hopped it into the water, then BAM Game time! I had to use my hand net. 10 pounds of weeds, 4 pounds of bass. Sears and Roebuck 7 foot fiberglass rod. medium action, 12 pound mono. Taken with my senior phone with two mega pixels. hahaha. Held bass at (36") arms length away. Had another on, but think it was too small for the frog, he let go. It was getting really hot (85 degrees) so I headed home. Also I was greeted by this heron that must have just caught his lunch as he was all wet and was preening his feathers. I was about 80 feet from him and he didn't seem all that much concerned about sharing fishing spots. Then I made a loud noise to make him look at me and he decided to make a hasty retreat.
