Killing time

Had a bit of free time this afternoon but not enough to go to one of my fishing holes. I had a few night crawlers so I hit the neighborhood retention pond. Fun afternoon I was there for maybe an hour and a half caught 20 bluegill and four bass. All of the bluegill would have been keepers if I had been fishing in something other than a retention pond

Well done! You sure made those crawlers last a while with so many fish being caught! Great photos! Have you ever noticed that nearly all the time, when a fish still has a hook in it's mouth, that their eyes are rolled down trying to see what the heck they bit into!? Glad that you got a chance to fill those idle hours with some fun!

Papa Jack: Looking at the photos, it would strike me that you have a large preditor in that pond. Look at the tail fins of bot the perch and the bass, part of it appears to be missing! Is it just how the fish in laying and the fin is partically hidden, or has something, a snapping turtle pehaps, taken a bite? Just Curious, and Just Sayin...RJS

Sounds like a fun day Papa. I wasn’t aware retention ponds held any fish, but those are great.👍

Enlarged the photos they didn't seem like they were missing any part of their fins
