I took the family to Redding this weekend for my Nephew's birthday, and was able to get out to a couple of local ponds on Saturday. The first stop was the Kapusta Ponds behind the Jolly Giant Flea Market, and were a total bust. I fished for at least two hours without a bite, swirl, splash, or anything. I think the recent rain really turned the fish off.
I went to another pond in the evening, and was able to redeem myself. I ended up with three fish in about an hour and a half. Not bad for February.

Not a bad bass
