First Spring Fishing Trip

A few weeks ago, I went on my first fishing trip of the year. My buddy Buttermilk and I went to a small lake near my home called Greenbrier Lake. It's only about 100 acres, but it's a great lake for kayak fishing.  Occasionally you may catch a nice bass.

The lake has a few resident beavers that go on their normal routine, even if folks are fishing near.  

Here you can see Buttermilk fishing hard using Trout Magnet as bait. It works for bass and brim, too.

Bang, Buttermilk sets the hook! Could it be a big Bass?

Nope, just a small brim.

Nevertheless, it's a fish.

Not a bad day of fishing for the first time of the year. We did catch a few brim and a couple of small bass. 
Hey, remember to get away from the big screen and get on a big stream!


  1. Shoreman you know in the South we have a name for everybody. His last name is Loudermilk, but we call him Buttermilk. Sometimes when he boasts about catching a trophy fish we call him a Ham, Greasy Ham!
