BFS Fishing | Micro Crankbaits for Bass

Midweek was able to go pond fishing for Bass. Fished with the Dual BFS Micro Flyrod and the Kastking Zephyr BFS reel. Left the fly reel in my jacket, but was ready to swap reels and go fly fishing if needed!

Tried a Rebel Barbless Crawdad and had several strikes before finally landing one.

Switched to a minnow lure we bought at Walmart for less than $2 and caught several more Bass

Fun stuff BFS fishing with light lures!

BFS Fishing | More Micro Crankbaits

More fishing with the Dual BFS Micro Fly Rod. Fished micro crankbaits - Rebel Crawdad, Walmart Minnow, and a Rapala Husky Jerk.

Was a tough go with the Rebel Crawdad's barbless hook and keeping the fish on the hook. Did get several with the minnow crankbaits!

Sidetracked prepping the jon boat for lake fishing... Finally made it to the local lake to run the 2.5hp Suzuki Outboard. So far so good!

Jon Boat Fishing | Easy Catfishing at the Local Lake

Still breaking in the new Suzuki 2.5hp Outboard but finally got to go fishing, too!  Started out catch bait - Shad, at the boat ramp. Then, ran to a few submerged trees for a chance at Crappie. No luck on the Crappie, so opted to run the motor a little before deciding to anchor in a spot that was out of the wind and fish for whatever was biting.  Was a fun time catching dinner at the local lake!

Easy bluegill fishing fly | Foam Rectangle Fly?

Pond fishing with the 4wt Fly Rod and Reel! Wanted to try a simple fishing fly that did not require lots of material!

Took a rectangle cutout of 2mm closed cell foam and tied it on to a size 12 hook. Added legs... then fished it to a bed of Bluegill.

It works!

Nice time catching fish!  Cute little ducklings!  Wife would've wanted to take those home.

Was funny that the ducks kept hanging around watch me fish and jumping over the line.

Get Started Fly Fishing | Try an Easier Simple Foam Fly Pattern!

The other day I tied a variant of a Foam Grasshopper Pattern that used a rectangle shaped foam pattern to make a two segment body. It worked well on Bluegill and a Bass, too!

Taking it one step simpler, shortened the rectangle so I could tie the pattern with only one body segment. The end result, more Bluegill and Bass!

Unfortunately, I lost the fishing fly. No worries though; had a Foam Grasshopper in Size 14 at the ready and was able to keep fishing.

Caught a number of Bluegill and Bass including some nice ones! Looks like simple works!

Check out the video!
