Fun with popper
After all my chores this weekend and with a full moon rising this evening, I went an hour and half before sun down to the pond for some perch-jerkin' with the 4wt. Not too much action but I was able to get some big hits on a #8 trim jim popper. I had a big swirl on it near sundown that maybe was a largemouth. On some successive casts though I let it sit and something sucked it down and the line started moving away and then I set the hook. I was hoping it was a small largemouth bass but ended up being a 8" bluegill! Cool! That made my evening.
