Small Pond Bass Hog Fishing In July
Tired of laying around the house and knowing the recent heavy rains had washed
bugs and worms into the area ponds, I headed out to a favorite small pond thinking it might be a great day for some
With the sky a little over cast, July 26th around 1:30pm turned out to be my
I threw it just beyond the tree and slowly hopped it back to the tree letting it
settle in the middle of the tree. It only took one wiggle and she ate it.
I set the hook and low and behold I not only got her, but the Tree also, and I
knew I had a hog when I set the hook.
She had managed to wedge herself in the tree and I was afraid that This one was
determined not to be landed without a fight
Wrapping a ball point pen around my Power Pro, I slowly started backing up. All
of a sudden the tree gave and I was sure that I had lost her, when I noticed my line
moving to the right.
I proceeded reeling her in and that is when she broke water and did a little
dance for me and my buddy.
After landing her, I was sorry I did not have my scale to weight her, but just by
the picture she is considered a BassHog.
The temp of the water was about 86 degrees and the air temp was hugging 90
I must be thankful that I spread the Smelly
Jelly on the worm. I am sure that is what got this hog, and my
buddy is logging on to my site to buy some. I sold him on it considering the rest of the afternoon produced a
lot of bass using the Smelly Jelly, but no more Hogs.
This is another good example that Basshogfishing is always out on some kind of
water looking for those hogs.
Keep The Hooks Wet!
