I had a day off and it was time to hit a pond. I had some other things to do early in the morning so it was late morning before I got to the pond.
We were experiencing the drought in this area, as many in the Midwest, and the pond was down about four feet. The break line where I catch many fish was now the new shoreline. The edge of the water was about seven feet farther out than it had been before, and there was a heavy bloom of algae on the surface.
