SUMMARY :
The water temperature in this pond is still incredibly warm, and the water level is quite low. Nonetheless, I did manage to pick away at a couple of small panfish on the spinner. Continuing on my experiment with color, I should note that bright colored lures do not seem to work well in clear water, as I did not get a single hit when I tried my 1/8 oz. chartreuse/lime rooster tail. Of course, I didn't stay with it long and nothing was real consistent today.
