DO try this at home…

Nice cameo piece from Dave Wolak on using that small, everyday water you might otherwise pooh-pooh, as a testbed for bigger and better days.

He talks of bass fishing but the principle translates just as well to trout, I suspect.

“Regardless of the size of the body of water they’re living in, bass behavior is similar, so what you observe in a small pond can be translated directly to what the bass are doing on nearby big water most of the time…Without being able to get a visual on their reactions to different presentations in the pond, I may never have figured out that pattern on the big lake.

“No matter how busy I am, I always make time to fish my home pond, because it’s the best way to connect the past (what I already know works), present (how behavior varies during real-time seasonal changes) and future (if new lures, colors, and presentations will draw strikes). It’s all invaluable information for success on the big lake.”
