...that I drive RIGHT by each time I turn down my street, they're not big and they have people at them all the time (bbqing, kids playing in the park, etc), so I never thought to give them a try - until tonight. I left just a few minutes before sundown, right after I got a wild hair to go make a few casts. I was pleasantly surprised to get down there and find something rising for an evening hatch. I hooked into one on my first cast - a handsized bluegill. Not amazing, but not a disappointment. They were easy to catch (allowed me to work on some techniques, etc) on a stimulator and plentiful. Fought like a fish 3 times their size too. Word is the lakes hold bass and trout as well. We'll see. The wife works late tomorrow, so I'll be back. I was looking for a place to go near the house so I could fish after work and not make an hour and a half drive each way. Anyone else luck out like this? Anyone have some killer patterns for warm-water species? I was thinking of tying up some popper patterns and terristials as well. Anything I should give a shot?
