July 19 2014 - Lake Orange

 Went down to Lake Orange.  It was overcast and cool.  Put in at about 6:45 PM

I fished up the lake, didn't catch anything, saw some green herons.  Before I started chronicling my trips, it never occurred to me  to wonder what sort of birds I was seeing.  It does add some color to the remembrance to find out what sort of birds I'm seeing.

Heading  back down teh lake, there were some baitfish breaking the surface, I cast a curly tail jig and reeled it through them, and caught this 10" bass, which was the only fish of the evening.

It rained off and on while I was there.  It never rained hard enough for me to get wet.

I took out around 9:30.  There was a guy at the lot who had 4 rods set up.  We talked for a little, apparently he is a tournament-winning carp angler.  He told me about some of his best carp bait, one of which was couscous with almond flavoring, and rice with ketchup.  This fellow was so committed, he even had a carp-related vanity plate on his car.
