0.7 lb. Yellow Perch caught by Caleb Evans fishing on Friday June 19, 2009 at 18:35 2.65 km from Waterbury Center in Washington County, Vermont (VT), United States North America

We went out fishing on Friday after work and the forecast called for rain, but all we saw was clouds. We only saw a few other kayakers out on the water and the water was so still. Unbelievably beautiful night to be out fishing.

So we saw some fish bubbling up on the surface of the water. I thought they might be trout, so we cast a worm 6 inches below the surface and each cast resulted in a perch. What is a little unusual, was that they were a bit silvery in color.

Lot's of fun catching a fish on every cast.

On another note, we paddled over to the rock in the background. I cast a worm on a bobber about 18 inches below the surface. Immediately got a hit and set the hook. The bass that jumped out of the water was massive. There are no large mouth bass in this body of water, but the mouth on this thing looked like a 5lb large mouth.

As soon as the fish did the leap out of the water and shaking of the head, the hook came loose. I just sat there in disbelief that the fish got off. On Sunday there were kids swimming and jumping all around that rock. I will try to make a trip back sometime after work this week around the same time and see if she is back in her little hole.

I think it was a VERY BIG Smallie. I need to get up there again this week when it isn't very busy.
