That was a fun lake!!! Never fished it till Thursdsy afternoon and found 8-10 good spots. Stuck one close to 2 and had 3 around a pound and a half!! Caught 30-35 fish and tossed 19 in the cooler! Friday waited out the rain and went and ate breakfast and looked at new stuff and added 6-8 more spots but only managed 15 or so keepers and only 1-2 big fish were threw back. Felt good about Sat but it was a tough day. Stuck 2 good fish early and lost 2 and must have lost 50 jigs!! I broke off everywhere we went! Even got broke off in the TM 2-3 times!! Langdon caught keeper number 7 at 10:45 so that was a good feeling!! We went back through some stuff I liked Thursday and pulled one weight fish off the first spot, then 3 off the second, nothing on the third and little man dropped down and stuck big fish of the day!!! I saw the thump on the Bonehead rod and Braid and little man wasted no time setting steel into that fishes face!! He quickly hollered this is no crappie but seeing how it wasn't pulling to the side or rolling the pole like a catfish I got the net ready in anticipation. Before I was ready he was hollering Oooh!! Oooh! Haha! Slabzilla was on the surface ready to join the party in the right side of the livewell! (Right side is the strong side). Swimmers go on the left!!
He's fished long and hard this year wanting to catch a fish to weight in at a qualifier! No better way to get one than the way it happened!! So proud of my little fishing buddy. Can't wait to see what he can do in 10 years!!
I looked forward to this lake all year!! Couldn't imagine fishing it when it's good!! Fun stuff!!
