SUMMARY :
Fished in between the rain drops today. Boy, do I love this pond. Thirteen fish in two hours with a steady 14 mph wind with gusts to 22. All fish caught on what has got to be the best spinner in my tackle box.

Halfway through this trip I got into a blistering school of spawning white perch. They were full of milt and were spraying it all over the place as I tried to unhook them. A couple of nice bass and a pair of golden shiners added to the fun.
