"1st Fish of 2020" ------ "3:10 to White Lake"
Hell the weatherman called for a "balmy" 38° today.......
"Good day to toss ...more the Yak in the pond" I thought to myself.
Got a late start(No no not "3:10 to Yuma"...... 3:10 to White Lake") is when I showed up. Figured that would give me `bout an hour & forty-five minutes to do a little Winter Wranglin` -
And I was throwin` my "go-to-Lure" that my good friend Pat Gallagher got me started on...... a vintage "Believer" lure and man, I love these lures........ for muskies, pickerel, bass whatever!
Using a very, very slow "twitch-twice, retrieve, twitch once" method, this mighty fine Winter Hawg Greenback, slowly inhaled the 7 inch Believer and became my 1st fish of 2020. As you can see, either a Eagle or Cormorant had him recently. I`m betting it was an Eagle as there are quite a few up in that area.
Snapped a few pics and released the beautiful Bass back in the icy cold January water to fight another day.
