With all the recent rain, I was feeling the itch to get out on the water so I recruited local Lansbrook fishing guru Kevin McCarthy and we headed out to some of our old spots to see if we could catch a few bass while not getting struck by lightning. We mostly hit a few golf course ponds as well as the firehouse lake near the YMCA. We started out with both of us getting a couple decent bass in the firehouse lake, mine on junebug Culprits and Kevin catching his on a lipless crankbait. We then hit the course fishing mostly lilly pads in a few feet of water. I started out pretty hot continuing to get them on junebug Culprits with a few small ones on a silver Shad Rap. I was up 12 fish to 6 at one point but Kevin tied on a Reaction Innovations Skinny Dipper in bullfrog and started yoking out fish on rapid fire! When it was all over, Kevin came out the victor with a 15-12 fish come back win and big bass to boot with this 3lb 9oz'er on a Texas rigged worm in the pads. I think he had 10 fish overall on the Skinny Dippers in about an hour and half! I think we have just added a new bait to our arsenal!
