Scattered Showers

A quick-hitting rain soaked me while float tubing a pond. The fish continued to hit size-12 black Bluegill Buggers as long as they were slowly retrieved near bottom. One bass of 12 inches and 20 bluegills to 9 inches were landed and released before sunset. The changeable weather seems to have caused the fish to hug the bottom at the bases of the weedlines. Strikes were difficult to detect as they ran toward the rod after hitting which led to too many missed hookups.
