I went out to the golf course this morning. As I was walking out to one of the ponds I could feel that cool north wind in my face. I've started to see alot more surface activity over the last week but this morning the bite was on fire flame I started with a White and Black Betts popper catching some small bass and green sunfish. You could see them coming from 5 feet away to attack the popper. I then had a big bass come flying out of the weed bed and attack the popper with such force that he broke the line. I switched over to larger size 4 foam spider and continued the onslaught of catching small bass and green sunfish.

From what I experienced this morning the Fall bite has begun in the ponds around my area. Lakes and Rivers can't be far behind. banana banana

I was able to fish another pond for about 30 minutes or so this evening. They weren't interested in the top water spider but I caught 5 good sized greenies on a crystal olive woolly bugger in about 15 minutes. Time to plan those Fall fishing trips.

The early morning bite is continuing to be good in the ponds. I'm seeing some more activity in the Lake as well, just not quite there yet.

I was tying on a fly this morning around 7 AM and my ears were cold. When it gets time for me to put on a beanie I know it's Fall!!!!!!

It is definitely on now. I fished the lake this evening. I fished from 5 to 7:15 PM. From 5 to 6 PM I caught 6 or 7 bluegill on live worms. Around 6 PM when the sun dropped to tree level I grabbed the fly rod and popper. It was on fire and just kept getting better. There was a 10 minute period when I didn't think they were going to let the popper hit the water. I didn't measure the water temperature but it was cold on my fly line. The bite finally subsided about 7:15.

I was throwing the popper as deep as I could into the sparse reeds. About 3 small quick pulls on the fly and stop. They would hammer it. Both white and yellow Betts fancy poppers. I ended up catching over 40 Bluegill and 3 bass. Bluegills were 7.5 to 8.5 inches long and weighed 7 plus ounces.

Thanks Jess/Chuck. The lake has been incredible from around 6:30 to 7:15 PM. The shad/bait fish are lighting up the water like stars twinkling in the sky. The big bass are jumping out of the water chasing them. Just being out there at that time the last few evenings has been incredible.
