Spring Sand Bass Run

(Sand bass love to be sweet talked) 

Jen put on a clinic the other day. We knew it was going to be a good day when the the first 2-3 casts resulted in fish. They were staging right where they were supposed to be. Each year when the buds appear on the trees it signals the arrival of the spring sandbass spawning run. It's not about numbers but when the sandies are running, the numbers add up quickly. Hopefully later this week I can do a little scouting on some of the other creeks in the area (after this cold front blows through) and repay a good friend with a close sand bass spot.

They're back! This year I believe I am ready. The baffle is up, it is away from the fence and I have a sparrow spooked ready to go up as soon as the first egg is laid. My RWS is dialed in and ready for any house sparrows. I love this time of the year.
