Loc: A small blue spot on planet ea...
I've been fishing more than usual lately as I need some revenge after falling on my face during the CAT tourney realmad
Belinda & I had a real good day the Sunday after the tourney with 2 over 2#'s caught, then we caught some more on Friday in the high winds

I got on the water yesterday morning & returned to the area I had been doing good at before the fish decided to not play with me
The spots that I had been catching fish only produced dinks,
but if you could scan around and find a small group of fish on smaller sections of structure.......
Then give them the presentation they wanted.......THUMP!



There was no "Was that a bite?" as it had been lately hooked



The presentation was to SLOWLY raise & lower your jig.......
But they would only hit it if you were moving it up so SLOW that you'd have to stare to see that I was raising it....
And they hit it on the rise hmmm



The fish here are already starting to fatten up and put on weight cheers
The water only got up to 85 degrees
Fish were in 21-24 fow and I was catching them 17' down
Midday a strong wind/rain storm rolled thru and I got off the water just in the nick of time.
After the storm rolled thru, I went back out, but couldn't get the quality fish to bite.
Caught 60-70 short fish before I decided that I'd had enough.
All fish kept were 11' or better.
Although I had 5 rods rigged and constantly changed colors and styles, all the good fish were caught on a new prototype bait I've been testing
The "Tadpole" in Pearl Ice

and the Mr. Fry in Silver Flash/Chart....

The wind even subsided before the storm rolled thru and I was able to use a 1/32 jig head with a Lil' Fry, but bigger was better roflmao



Time to start scouting CC, so I'll leave these fish here alone for a bit..........
That's a tall order when I can sit here and see the lake....I'll leave them alone for the most part anyway roflmao

Nice report. Love it when they let you know they are wanting to play when they try and jerk the rod out of your hand.

By the way. I don't think you fell on your face at all in the CAT trail. 38+ lbs. on jig only "NO MINNOWS" only Thermocline Lures is a huge success. You guys did very well. You should feel very proud of your accomplishments and walk tall with your head high.

Hope to see you at the TSCC and next years CAT trail. Keep on making baits as I am running low...

I thought I had them penned up for the Fork tourney...didn't talk any smack...didn't stick my fish, just graphed them.
Maybe I should have played around there more and found out that they had moved slightly.......
Oh well, live & learn

Good report, I use 4-5 rods this time of year because the sun is so hard on rods, but in the cool months use 10-12. Let us know what you decide on the tadpole, sounds good, and I rate Belinda's pearl ice first in class on all of the jigs she does in it.
