SUMMARY :
After the last trip, I couldn't stand being just a half dozen fish shy of the 600 mark, so I sneaked this little trip in. This pond has been the most consistent fish producer from shore all season. Nothing that big, but the action has been steady most nights. Surprisingly, my favorite brown/gold spinner produced very little today. I wish I knew why, but it is a good lesson in bringing, if not different lures, at least different colored lures.
