Last night I visited A. Perry Phillips Park in Boone County. Phillips Lake looks like it could have some decent fishing, but the shallows were choked with algae and I didn't fancy removing algae from my lure after every cast, so I moved on to South Farm R-1 Lake.
I spent about an hour catching nothing. At one point I had something on the line, but when I went to tighten my drag (it was almost all the way open to start with) the fish got off the hook. Then, all of a sudden, fish started biting!
I caught two small Largemouth Bass and a decent (8 1/8") Bluegill before it was time to go home.
