Day 11: The Slightly Less Elusive Nomahegan Bass

A small Nomahegan Bass.
When: Monday, May 23rd, from 6:30pm to 7:15pm
Where: Lake Nomahegan
What: Fishing
Weather: Cloudy and cool.
Moon: Waning, a few days before the last quarter.

This was not my day. I was pretty exhausted from a busy Sunday and almost didn't make it fishing.

But I did.

It was evident, however, that I was dragging from a long weekend and a long Monday. Anyone who fishes with me knows that I am always well prepared and that I NEVER forget anything.

I did today.

As I was getting my 2-piece St. Croix from the trunk, I realized that I left my camera on the floor or our living room. You'll notice that the picture above is cell-phone quality. Since I had no time to go back and get my camera, I walked to the lake and began fishing, but then realized that I left my sunglasses in the car. I wasn't overly concerned that I wasn't going to look cool, but I was concerned with how difficult it was going to be to see what was going on underwater. Despite the clouds, there was quite a glare on the water. Without polarized lenses, I couldn't see where the weedbeds were, I couldn't see if there were any bedding bass and I couldn't see if anything was smacking my lure.

It made it tough, but I did manage one small bass.

I'll take it.

Next up: Fishing. Not sure where yet. Depends on my Tuesday.
