13. Bass Bite
“You know they don’t stock these golf course ponds, right?” Derrick asked. “There’s nothing in there but sunfish and frogs. Only an idiot would fish here.”
Maybe the huge largemouth bass heard Derrick’s tone and took an instant dislike to him. More likely he was fooled by Corey’s spinnerbait because he’d never seen one before. Nobody fished his pond. In either case, he rushed from his hiding place and attacked the lure. A few minutes later he’d been photographed, and released back into the water, confused but a little more wary.
“You gotta love nature,” Corey said. “Ain’t it great when the deer don’t dart in front of your car? Or, the rain holds off until after the game? The sun shines on someone’s wedding day? How about when the bass bite? You gotta love when the bass bite.”
Today I will be grateful when nature cooperates.
