I had the chance to do some fishing while I was in Kansas on my co-workers private farm pond. The pond was muddy and small but had some very willing takers! The pics are of a 3lber (my co-workers guess) - he said if it had been summer, that fish would have been a 5lber. I have to admit I fished with a spinning rod and used a blue and black squid looking thing with a huge weight and an even bigger hook. Amazing what these frickin things will eat.
