Belinda & I got out around 5pm after getting our 2015-2016 licenses at Star Mart.
The 1st 2 spots gave up dinks and small keepers, but the 3rd was a charm!
A wind front hit suddenly, but my Ulterra held me spot on
It only works good in a brisk wind, and the wind was far past brisk
We had to upsize to 1/16 jigheads, but for an hour, as soon as it got to 17', THUMP!
No little fish, all good solid fish!!!! You would have almost thought we were catching the same fish again and again
We were using Mr. Frys, but I think we could have used the Supers!!!! Wednesday 9-2
We started fishing that evening in a different area, same story, dinks & small keepers.
Ran back to the area we had fished the evening before, different spot and the bite was on
Not as fast as Tuesday, but a great evening of fishing
After parking the truck and boat, Belinda asked, "We fishing tomorrow?"NO!
, I need to recoup for a couple" Her lower lip pouted out a bit, but she said she understood.Saturday 9-5
We were supposed to fish with Tommie, but found out that he didn't bring his seats and I had to back out.....Just can't stand and fish for very long
We got an early start on a beautiful morning
Caught some nice 11" fish on a bp in 14 fow.
We searched & found some more bp's the same depth, but the sun had gotten up too high.
Ran back to the general area we had been fishing.
Although the bite was slower, we used 1/32 jigheads and SLOWLY
worked the 18' to 15' water column.
The fish would just get tired of it moving in front of them and attack the bait with all they had!
At one point, Belinda claimed I was "Front Seating" her, felt my seat turn a bit and she climbed on the front of the boat
She was catching fish faster then me, so I don't know where she got that thought
We ran into Hickory Nut and gave him the 21 we had kept, most were quality fish with thick shoulders!
