I was contacted by a Mr. Graham from 2cool fishing forum. Reading and seeing many of my post and reports from another forum he some how found my number and contacted me. He ask me if I can help him learn how to catch fresh water fish for the only thing he knows is salt water fishing. Sitting at home getting HSS (Home Sickness Syndromes) me and my son decided to call Mr. Graham and take him to Lake Somerville for a knowledge sharing day. We launch early morning and found fish soon as we turn the corner. We landed one hybrid and a few large whites then decided to check all my favorite spots to see if they all had fish and decide on fishing the best location. Fish were holding the same pattern as last week and were bunching up in small school at all location we stopped at. I tied on a Deep diving crank bait tendum rigged with a pet spoon and the rest was history. Lips was ripping. Fish landing and hitting the deck left and right once we locked on to a school that would not move. We saw lots of hybrids mix in with the whites but seems them hybrids were not ready to feed yet. Mr. Graham has the hot hands today. He caught and landed four hybrids and a full limit of big fat whites bass.
Mr. Graham could not stay for the evening bites so we went home at 1:00 pm. Folks fish are very active right now spitting up shads schooling and bunching together. Make time and get on out there and fish before the big cold northern changes the bite or maybe even temporally shut it down for a while. Thanks for reading my post. Hope you guys catch a bunch for the grease pot or even an epic day.
Mr.Graham future fishing dog and his nice limit. His comments to me. Wow!! This is the most fish I ever caught.
My son life vest came off so he can strip off heavy coat but put back on soons we pull anchor. He gives today a thumbs up!!
Nice cooler of fish.
Mr.Graham never eaten a hybrid striper before. He cook this today and showed it to me. Said his family loved it.How do you guys do that? turning a slimy ugly fish into a piece of art. Just WOW!!
Me I just throw my fish in the oven. Head,tails,scales and all and bake it untill it looks like it's been tortured enough. Then peel it like a banna and pick the meat off.
