Yesterday I got out early to hit up some roadside canals and retention ponds off site that I have been eyeing for awhile that look like good potential. Had my poles, casting net and new gig pole. Already at 8:30 an it was pretty windy so that sucked, no rain nice and sunny though.
I hit up this mile long canal section that had lily pads along the banks but no strikes or action at all, that was a bust. Then I went to 2 huge retention ponds but the wind was in my face stong it was hard to cast out had 1 nice bass come out s drain pipe grabbed my frog but just mouthed it went to set the hooks and it popped out so that was a bust.
Next I hit another canal and finally I hook one small bass so that was cool, but that was that
My last stop was the roadside damn and lock I use to hit up and post from where their is bass, gar, Oscar's and black Armored Catfish ( Pleco).
Got a couple more small bass then I gigged a small Pleco. There was a handful of gar but they wouldn't get close enough where I could gig them.
It was nice to take a break from my ponds and hit up some spots I never been too just wish it wasn't so windy it seems most of the banks I could only work the wind was in my20190922_115002.jpg20190922_090405.jpg20190922_102229.jpg20190922_154925.jpg20190922_102237.jpg20190922_102241.jpg20190922_112347.jpg20190922_104341.jpg20190922_112415.jpg20190922_112440.jpg face and tuff to cast.

Congrats on the fish....all we used to gig were frogs and brackish water crabs.

Went off site today to fish and gig some spots. I ended up Gigging 2 nice size Gar out of a roadside canal using my new gig point I bought that was way better built and more solid strong points then the bass pro ones I was using. gigged both gar perfect right behind the head with solid penetration.. . ...tra

Looks just like the five pointer I bought from Western Auto back in the '60s.

With the fish you gig, do you compost and toss in the veggie garden?

No quaildeath, I justl leave them for buzzards.
Had a freind who use hook alot of trout and he would chop them up and blend them in his veggie growing pots, grew some great tasting tomatoes.

Got out again today went to my dam lock site. Gigged 2 real nice gars but lost them due to bad strikes but ended up Gigging 4 black Armored Catfish so that was some good action.....tra
