|Well I was ready for something a little different, and a break from that damn Delta hyacinth, so when a nice little weather window showed I loaded the pram and headed for Eagle Lake. Too bad this place isn't a bit closer because these have to be some of the finest fish that the state has to offer. Multiple jumps, frantic head shakes & explosive surges; many of them managed to spin my tiny pram in several circles before coming to the net. Really pretty fish too, with bright, vibrant colors and deep bodies.|
A bit of a breeze might have made made the fish a little grabbier, but the action was fairly steady anyway, and with morning temps in the 20's the calm was fine with me. You just gotta love those big, strong fish in shallow water, and the scenery isn't bad either!
