    2016 was my first year of bass fishing. I had only caught one 2" bass before then, on a fly. All these fish were caught at Laguna Lake (a real gem of a lake) and most with the dropshot and a plastic worm, Berkley, Roboworm, Senko.

    The third to the last bass, my p.b., was caught when I was using a mealworm pupae to catch bluegill. It actually came after a hooked b-gill and I was able to yank the b-gill from the water before the bass ate it. I accidentally dropped the gill back in the water and who knew? The bass came back and ate it. I guess the gill was lip hooked and when the hook came out, it hooked that bass.

    Before the Game Warden comes to cite me, earlier that day I also dropped a gill after I unhooked it and it fell to the ground where a female duck ate it.

    The first-post fish was caught in 2017.

    I have been hooking catfish at Laguna. I release all I have caught. I thought about eating one. The other day while fishing I saw a 8 inch diameter rainbow colored oil spot. I watched it as it float by. It hit some junk at the edge of the bank. I though it would break apart. It was a solid mass that spun around. It stopped. i grabbed a stick and poke at it. The stick made a hole. Also made a thin coating on the stick. I poked at more of it. More coatings on the stick. It was like plastic cellifane. I poked as much as I could. I got most of it. The end of the stick was covered with the thin plastic coatings. Yes, it was kind gross. I won't be eating any catfish. I won't be eating any fish from the lake. Anyone have an idea what it is?

    Sadly this fish bled. Berkley Worm n hook came out clean. Quick n easy. Got it back in the water before this snap shot. After release it rested for two seconds and swam off. Hope it was able to survive.

    I was fishing the lake and watched a guy pour a ice chest of about 20 fish in the lake. I could not tell the kind of fish until I moved close to the dump site. I saw a big dead goldfish 5 inches floating there. I am not sure if all the fish let go were the same.
