I headed out to a pond that I had not been to for a while. The road had washed out and had been fixed for about a week. This is one that can be driven to and that allowed me to take the canoe. I got everything in the canoe and moved it about 25 feet to get near the edge of the pond. I made a few casts before I launched the canoe and first cast resulted in a bass about a foot long. The rod tip danced a lot while getting this fish in. I made a few more casts and picked up a few more bass. I changed rods and tried again and got two more bass with that rig. I tried the third rod and got another bass. Where are the cousins?
