Terry’s late-evening (after 6:30 pm) float trip to a local pond found a ravenous largemouth bass population. A 6-wt. rod and size-2 yellow diving frogs that are easier to see in the shaded weed pockets proved to be the magic potion to bring 17 largemouths to hand. Three were measured at 17 inches and another 3 were 15 inches. The¬†vicious hits and heart-stopping leaps are great memories that far outweigh the oppressive heat.
