On Friday and yesterday I spent some time on the lake scouting for catchable fish. When scouting I am not trying to maximize fish caught but rather trying to ID the most places I can where I can catch a decent number of fish. On Friday I caught 29 with the majority coming from Enchanted Isle Ridge. It was loaded with fish at its shallowest spots - 19 fow. Also caught about half a dozen at north tip of Spillway Hump in 20 fow and on north slope of Merimac Point in 16 to 18 fow. Checked but found no fish at Key Ranch Drop-off, Key Ranch North, the other parts of Spillway Hump and the Rock Pile. The fish I caught were with the #2 Mepps rig.
Yesterday I caught 63 fish at East Dam Hump, Key Ranch Drop-off and Saint Annes Point East in 14 to 20 fow all but 2 using the #2 Mepps rig. Checked but found no fish at Dam Hump West of the Pole, Campbell's Hump, Dam Drop-off, Dam Ridge, Greenhouse Ridge, the A-Frame, Saint Annes Point West, Saint Annes Drop-off and Sam's Hump. The catch included sandbass plus another huge buffalo, a 3 lb LMB, a 13 inch yellow bass, 6 cats and a 22 inch hybrid.
