In spite of the heat Dave and I each managed two bass total, for two ponds fished. Technically I got three since I did touch my bass that spit the jig back at me on the shore's edge. I figured it was fine that I got him as close as I did and lipping him would have been unnecessary. I gave him a push back toward the water and he flipped and swam back to the bottom of the pond.
After dropping Dave off at home I stopped and had a bite to eat. It was noon and 97 degrees and sunny. I had to wrack my brain for spots I could fish but where I could also sit in the shade. I decided to to to a gill pond I know about and try out my new 7'6" Bass Pro $20 ultralight. They still have some left and at $20 it's a nice rod and an OK reel.
