it's amazing the difference in fish in a few hundred miles distance
we have a large pond/small lake in front of my shop and I finally decided to fish it.
In Virginia where the water is colder I always had success with some loud colors on my baits because the bass there in the colder water are less aggressive.
I tried some of my neon type poppers yesterday at our pond and popper after popper I couldn't get a bite.
This morning I grabbed some much more subdued colored poppers and tried again...caught 8 bass in 90 minutes before work.....then ran out and tried again at lunch and caught 4 more in 15 minutes as the sun was going down.
Caught averaged 2ish pounds and caught 2 that went over 5.All released.
It amazes me how animals can change behavior so much do to what is really not a big change in environment
