Sorry for the late report. I really haven't been posting my fishing reports and keeping everything up to date. But I took the time to go ahead and post one.
My partner and I had a decent day on the water. We ran across what I call a honey hole and loaded up on the bites. In four hours we were able to land fifty eight bass while fishing a T/R small plastic. We were in water ranging from ten to fourteen feet and they were on a chew. Had several that hit it on the fall, we also had several double hook ups. The bite was between 2 pm to 6 pm. Nothing very big, only a few in the three pound range, but the two pound fish fought great as well. For some reason I have always been a number catching guy and not so much on chasing huge bass. Well I guess I do know the answer to that one, I like catching fish more than I do fishing for them. When you go out looking for the big bite, you will spend a lot of time fishing. But there is a reward for it when it does happen, that bass will drag you all over the place and you will use every bit of your boat deck from the front to the back before you land it. Such an adrenalin rush. But I still like to catch numbers when I'm out fun fishing with friends.
The water is cooling down, think it was 82 degrees. The shallow water bite is still slow, but you can pick one up here and there throwing a trap. I never did try the timber area so I have no clue what is going on in there, I might try it next trip just to see. I can't wait for December when the top water action goes ballistic. It doesn't get any better than catching fifty to sixty bass all on top water and decent quality fish at that. But those days are just around the corner and it's gonna be a blast.
Hope this report helps a few anglers decide where their next trip will be. Have a blessed day everyone.
