A cold rain followed by bright sun sent my favorite pond’s residents into the depths. Casts from my float tube were counted into the depths and slowly retrieved. For two hours the catch totaled 4 fish, 2 largemouths and 2 bluegills! Each was taken at a different depth which indicated that most of the fish were suspended over deep water. Fishing my way back to the launch site, I noticed that a band of shade extended from a section of tree-lined shore. Casts into the shaded shallows with a white/silver Mini Minnie produced 26 bluegills of 7 to 9 inches in the final 45 minutes.
