Hanging with my b-day buddy.
We decided to fish close to home. We stopped at Fontana Wildlife Exhibit and Park in Hazleton, IA.
Back about 25 years ago my father used to take my brother and I here and we would catch Smallies all day long. Times have changed for this fishing hole. Being over run by carp really hurt it bad. But in the past few years I have seen some come back in more desirable fish. IE: Smallies, Crappie, and today Rock Bass. A fisherman's tale told to me "If you have rock bass in your waters that it is a sign of those waters are doing well and will prosper."
Until next time, keep you drag set right!
