Looks like a fun trip. Need to cull some fish from that pond.

Always good to have a backup plan. When we hunted a pond/tank, we always carried a rig like yours. It was used to retrieve birds that hit the water. Sure was fun when you missed the bird and caught a nice fish on the retrieve.

I did exactly that on a hunt in Waco back in the early 80's. I was sitting next to a stock tank full of bass catching one after another. When a bird(s) were coming, I put my rod under my leg, picked up my shotgun and started shooting. Sometimes I had to do this when I had a bass on the line. Good times!

Yep, we do it every time we go out whether its dove or duck. Best way to get the birds moving, be distracted lol


and yes, its time to start culling some of those bass. Just about everyone was about the same size and skinny
