Lake Marion Evening Outing

So my Pan-O-Prog partner Ryan & I got out for about 2.5 hours last night on Lake Marion in Lakeville.  We decided to look for some new shallow water / slop areas to go with some of our deep water stuff that we fished last year.  We tied on frogs, buzz toads and flipping rigs and worked the shallow pads & weed mats.  We managed to catch 3 bass all around 2lbs and missed a couple more.  They all came on black floating frogs.

Nothing to write home about, but it was good to be out bass fishing again after being in Europe.  Also, while I was gone, we climbed to 39 email subscribers, thanks to all you new subscribers!

Couple thoughts, sad to see the Majors gone, but very excited to see them coming to IA, I am definitely going to put my money in for that tournament as a co-angler.  Good to see some new water like Falcon, that will be a great tournament, probably better then Amistad.  Also Lake Murray is a great lake as well.  Probably will get out on Marion tomorrow night as well.  Then Friday night I will get all tied up and prepared for my club tournaments this weekend on Clearwater & Chisago, have not been on either one this year :0
