Came down to do some prep for bow season and hunt dove in the morning. I was working on some old boards on the dock and was casting an olive jig fly for crappie on breaks. Already had several slabs take. Took a break before dark and felt just slight tension. Strip set hard and line took off for the middle of the lake. The fish bulldogged and never wanted to leave the bottom. Really thought I had a big flathead on. As the fish finally tired I was glad the ground was soft I finally saw it was a bass and jumped to ground. It was just barely hooked in the middle of the upper lip and fat like it was March. Really great day broke another good fish off should have retied. Got into some exotic collard dove for a warm up. Big crappie and bass. Also saw a new one we hung a lantern off the dock in the dark and thousands of gnats were burning their wimgs and falling to water. With little wind there was a slick of them. A banded water snake smelled them and was swimming circles with its mouth open gulping them down. Really wild to watch it ate for an hour.

Very, very nice 3weight bass, that snake must have been a hoot to watch, very unusual.

Ok, now I see what I'm doing wrong. I've been fishing all day with seven and eight weights. I guess I need to find some work to do at Roberts. Then, fish a three weight for big bass on my breaks.
Cool snake.

Great fish Robert thumb I've been thinking it's about time to hit the LMB again. I caught my biggest 2 in September last year.

Nice bass for sure ! I can do without the snake since I don't like snakes but I know when fishing they are going to be close somewhere . I've had them come to bank where my fish chain were holding a couple nice ones and the snake tried to get them with no luck tho wink .

Nice fish Robert, but that snake would've been on the business end of my shotgun.

what fly did you use on the dove, a milo pattern? smile looks like a great time! there is defiantly an art form to landing big fish on wee rods. well done sir.

I caught a water snake on a fly once. it was a heck of a fight and was fun until I realized that I had to get it OFF the hook.

lol looking in my food samples from the crop I figured out the dove needed a little size 18 black sunflower fly. I snagged a snake on time for the heck of it and then realize the same thing. You don't think about it until you actually hook it then you start wonder what the heck was I thinking.
