Lunch Break, October 2009

I found a little community fishing pond a few blocks from where I work and I figured I needed to go try it out. I'm typically not real big on fishing these types of spots but I saw it as a good opportunity to take a break from the office and unwind for a few minutes. I fished for about a half hour and in that time I landed 8 planter rainbows with the biggest going 13" and most going alot smaller than that. I'd guess the average fish I caught was in the 8" range. I used a mepps XD spinner size 1 rainbow pattern and I had hits or a fish on just about every cast. It was actually more entertaining than I thought it was going to be. I went back to work and the day seemed to go better. I think I may hit it more often now. I had my cell phone with me so I took a few pictures.

Small community pond

This was about average. This bow still had par marks.


  1. I would take that kind of break from work with that kind of success any day. It is good for the soul!

  2. Found your blog from Mel's Idaho Fishing Notebook. Love looking at some of the pics you've taken. UT is one of the most beautiful places in the country (in my opinion) - have been in and around Salt Lake & Logan for business quite a few times, just unfortunately never got to fish - next time! I'm going to add you to my blogroll.
