Wishbone contrails reflected on the lake. I had hoped to hook a lunker, of course. Second time I've fished Tilcon Lake, Stephens State Park. the first time we fished Senko-type worms without a hit. This time I brought along half-a-dozen shiners, since I imagined the water would still be chilly, especially early in the morning. Once a quarry pit, this lake is deep. Had about 45 minutes to fish, catching a bass and two pickerel.
Beautiful place. The mountains flanking the water make the scene. If it were flat land, it wouldn't feel the same. Quarry lakes exist in Indiana and each must be like an oasis. But the Highlands in my back yard always give my mood a vertical lift that flat land can't.
