Rain, rain go away! I’m trying to catch fish here! Recent trip over to Flanagan Lake with the boat, the rains cut into my fishing time but didn’t deter the fish from biting. Jigged among the trees and cast/finesse fished small 1/32 oz. jigs with bling tipped and medium sized leeches & crawlers. No disappointment in the quality of fish and the bite today at this new lake. The Bluegill bite was really hot! Caught 50+ fair size Bluegill, fun using the ultralights and light line. Picked up a number of fair Crappie to 9”, a dozen Largemouth Bass at 9-16” and a dreaded 12” Bullhead - Not to insult you bass fisherman but I thought I had a good bass hooked up!
Overall very good fishing between the rain storms and the wind gusts at this “Catch and Release Only” fishing lake in northwest Omaha. Yes, I got wet! Not fun but hey an adventure! Oh, I kinda felt like a “bridge troll” finding refuge out of the rains as I fished under the Ida Street bridge.
