Went out around the house for a couple hours about 10PM.  Just dragging plastics and jigs.  Found a few here and there.  Gravel bite picked up the later it got. Ran into a pretty good brown fish in the process.  It sure is nice not getting your guts knocked out by wake boats.

Brother and I were able to get away and come down for a short weekend trip. Saturday morning tried a little of everything (plopper, spook, jig, ned, 10″ worm, 10XD, spoon) with very little success. Spent a good amount of time trying to spoon docks but they weren’t having it. Not even one bite on the spoon thus Saturday morning/day was a bust. I have a habit of trying to force feed fish on what I WANT them to eat…not what THEY want to eat.  read more…

Actually caught several shorts and 1 that was 16″.  I was having fun so I just kept hitting the same bank until 7:15 with about 18 shorts total with several hits and misses. By 7:15 I was out of bank. read more…

I went out early and found zero top water bass. I switched to a Ned and caught 10 or 11 sitting on a flat in 25 feet of water and throwing to 12 feet of water. I tried two bluff end points and caught another 4 or 5. All were small and the best one did not measure. I decided to try the new rig trolling. I learned a number of things. For example, a boat with a wheel is more awkward than a tiller boat for trolling. Example two: MinnKota makes their drift socks with cheap hook eyes. read more…
