Jigum came up and fished with me
I always enjoy time spent with Matthew
The wind was terrible!!!
I'd run to a spot that should have been out of the wind judging from the direction it was blowing at the prior spot
and it would be blowing right in there
We only caught 8 keepers with about as many shorts.
I knew of 5 other boats that were out that day and all caught 8 except for BlueNitro whom ended up with 18
The floor of my boat was littered with "let me try this colors"
We had to downsize to the Lil' Fry in Black Emerald shiner to get bit
Sorry no pics from that day, I was busy with the TM!!!Tuesday 6-2
I had the privilege to spent the morning in the boat with Ken Gaby
I always learn a few new things when fishing with him
Thanks Ken for letting me weasel my way in your open seat
We were using the Lil' Fry in Black Emerald Shiner with Blue Sparkle 1/16 jigheads
Here's Ken below after netting my biggest fish of the day
We ended up with 39, 10 of which we donated to a couple of ladies fishing at the ramp Wednesday 6-4
Walbanut made the trip over to fish with me
Again we struggled with the wind in the am
We really had to downsize to 1/48 & 1/32 jigheads wit Lil' Frys in Black Emerald Shiner & Ice Shad to start really swinging some fish in the boat
Although it was a very slow start, and my back was screaming quit,
once the wind let up enough for us to use light presentations, it was GAME ON!
No monster slabs, but we put 38 in the box for a fish fry he's doing for a wedding reception, and easily 3x's as many shorts
I'm very blessed for all the fishing buddy's I've made here on TFF and my dance card is still loaded
