I went by the lake today to see how the little bass were doing... the ones the hatchery were stocking in the lake last Sunday. I found them hiding in the grass along the shore. They seemed in good shape, nice and healthy. I don't think this one was really pleased to have his picture taken. Or it might have been that he "felt the steel", and missed a meal. The little peacock bass were also out in good numbers... Saw lots of BIG peacock bass... the 3 to 5 pound size... but I was using 4# test and knew there was no way to land those big'uns on my little Tenkara rod. While I was landing this little guy a huge peacock bass tried to eat it. I spoke with some fishermen who did land some 3 and 4 pounders... using live bait.
