Had the day off so I went to Lake Anna to try a prototype dropshot rod out for a friend. Caught about a dozen fish ranging from dinks to a 3 lber on the dropshot in various locations. Went uplake to a set of docks in Pamunkey and whacked this 5.63 lber on a jig & pig. 1" shy of a citation. Oh well.

From time to time, I like to look back at old fishing pictures and remember the moment. Here are a few. From the top clockwise......My wonderful wife of 37 years, Linda, with Hank Parker at a fishing show in 2003; a 5 lb 12 oz. bass at Lake Anna in August, 2000 and a 25 lb. rockfish on the Chesapeake Bay in 1999.

Today, Chris McCotter gathered around 20 guys and gals and we all volunteered to construct 11 Berkley fish habs in the name of Doug Ball. Doug passsed away in May, 2008 and was an avid fisherman / guide for many years on Lake Anna. While I personally did not know Doug, I have heard some nice stories about his ability to always catch fish on Lake Anna. The structures will be placed by VDGIF on Tuesday at the old fish structure #5 downlake across from Dike 1 and a marker bouy installed with Doug's name on it.

I have been thinking about this for a while. I have seen thru many years of observing people, that some may try to pattern themselves thru the actions of others. That said, fisherman are no different. I am "not a guide" or a "pro", but when it comes to fishing I think I have something I could teach to people who are willing to learn. If you would like to learn the basics or the details of bass fishing on lakes and rivers, I will tailor a lesson that is for "you". In the time spent with me, you will learn about casting, rigging, use of rods/reels, line, knots, variety of lures (no live bait), and all at your choice of location. That's right........I will come to you. Whether you want on the water (fishing license required) or on dry land, it doesn't matter.
