Sand Bass fishing is super at PK right now. I know the metro lakes are muddy but PK is clear. I crossed Bridgeport on the way to the Lake house and it looked like my coffee in the morning when my wife's not looking and I can put enough cream in it. That gal is determined to make me live too long and end my life in dementia care.
I have no idea how many sandbass I caught yesterday. 40-50 or even more. I didn't really want to keep any, as I had just prepped the garden and my back was sore and I was tired. But I kept pulling up these big fat 14-16 inch fatties so I put them in the box. Haven't counted yet but I think I kept about a dozen. Caught a few on chartreuse wildeyes but I kept marking these massive schools of fish and wasn't getting fast enough response from them so I changed to a small white fat free shad bomber with a 1/4 oz chartreuse roadrunner with a white and chartreuse trailer and that did the trick. Water Temps were about 61/62 so I figured they might chase that crankbait and I was right. I trolled through the school and had one on every hook. Spot locked the boat and caught double after double casting through that school. Two of those big sandies almost make you think you have a striper.
Sorry for the sub par pic. I'll take a better one and update later when I clean these guys.
Here's a better pic of some of these footballs I was catching.
