It was just way too calm!!!!
My boat was shining way too much!!!!
And my FAVORITE
time of year is here
I had Belinda put me in around 11am, idled straight out to a submerged treetop and immediately started piercing some lips
I love fishing with a 1/32oz jig head and letting it slowly fall thru the fish. I think they bite it "Just Cause it's there!"
After catching 20 gooduns, hardest part was to get down thru the small fish to where the larger ones are lurking, I fired up the big motor, put her in gear and started scanning for new submerged treetops.
With the new water level, some of my old spots are too deep now and some that were too shallow last year, are perfect now
I marked several new places holding fish
After boating 35 over 11"s, wasn't keeping any, just fishing for the thump, I called Belinda and said "Uncle", I've had enough!
Water temp was 88.7, fish are on submerged treetops in 24-28 fow, suspended 12-17 foot down. The bigger fish came on the outside, in the 16-17' range
I sent Jigum a couple of pic's and told him the bite is fast & furious again.......within 30 seconds my phone was ringing
If the weather is good, we'll go Wed
