Bass fishing in Old Town

I've been so busy I haven't had time to write anything to all my my good buddies out and about in the great State of Maine
On Thursday of last week( the day it was near 100 degrees) I fished the Stillwater River in Old Town/Orono. What an evening for Bass fishing. I caught a ton of bass but they were all caught below the surface. They were not interested in any top water lures. The biggest was about 3.5 lbs....Yeah O.K., I didnt break any records but I caught a mess of them, all about 10" 16"'s. I did catch a lot of huge sun fish, too. They were monsters for sunnies. I was going to keep a mess of them and fry them up but I didn't. The river was like glass, just perfect for an afternoon drift fishing adventure. I slowly canoed the shore line casting at all the logs and trees that potentially hid a bass or two. When you fish for bass, you want to look for some "structure". By this I mean a place the bass can hang out where they can ambush other bait fish and insects but not be picked off by Ospreys. I fished all the way down to the rope swings that are on the river. At the swimming hole, I watched this high school girl ( I can't tell any more) come racing down to the shore, climb up a tree with rickety boards tacked to it up to about thirty feet above the water. She zipped around the trunk out onto a two inch stub of a branch ...paused for a second, then "boop", off she went. Very impressive! I'm not sure I would have climbed that rickety ladder, let alone jump from that height.
...he he and she wasn't hard on the eyes either! Laughing

I paddled back up to my truck just before the skies unleashed a huge torrent of water and lighting.
Anyway...it was a good time....I've got to get to work.
