2 quick reports: Yesterday I checked several spots on the south end but only caught fish at east and west ends of Long Ridge: 23 whites and 5 yellow bass. Today I started at 10am looking at Kevin's Point. Nothing there. Next at Iron Wall Hump and caught 6 there. Went farther north and checked Spillway Hump and the Rock Pile and nothing there. Caught 2 at Enchanted Isle Ridge. So, I had 8 fish in 3 1/2 hours. On the way back home I stopped at east end of Long Ridge and caught 17 more in an hour. Left for house when I reached 25 total whites - fish still biting. Still using white #4 Mepps keeping it close to bottom.

Got out from 1 to almost 4 PM today. Looked at 3 spots and found good numbers of fish at 2 of them: Staubach Hump (24 fish including a 20 inch hybrid) and east end of Long Ridge ( 21 fish - all whites except for one nice yellow bass). I caught those at Long Ridge in about 30 minutes - all under the boat. Very thick - drop Mepps straight down, using rod lift it up from bottom just enough to make it spin. By 2nd or 3rd lift a fish was on. They were still biting that well when I had to leave for an appointment. Water temp was 50.4 degrees (coming up). Still using white #4 Mepps Aglia on 10 lb fluorocarbon line. Here's pic of fish under boat at Long Ridge:

Dang, looks like they were glued to bottom. Nice work in 50 degree water, will be trying your Mepp's technique soon on Somerville. Thank you for sharing your methods and success. thumb

Very nice Dennis. That is what my graph looked like Friday at Hubbard.

Dennis, do you think they would be to shy to hit this look-a-like using the straight up and down method?
I think I recall you saying you use 10 lb test flourocarbon, and wondering how line shy they are when cold.

Steve Strasemeier and friend Robert came down to Cedar Creek Lake yesterday and picked me up at the dock for some afternoon fishing. Wasn't sure whether they wanted to dead-stick or structure fish. They opted for what I could help them with - which was structure fishing. So, we went to east end of Long Ridge (best spot lately) but no concentrations there. We eased over to mid part of the ridge and found some. We ended up catching good sized white bass there, the west end of Long Ridge, Mid-lake Hump and Staubach Hump - a total of 52. We fished from about 12:30 to 5:30PM. We caught some fish under the boat and some casting out and reeling in. Steve and Robert caught some on the white Mepps#4 as well as some other baits. The fish were all good-sized (13 to 16 inches), mostly fat females. Weather was great - calm and sunny. This is the first time I have fished with these two, and they love fishing as much as I do - we had a great time. Here are some pics of the trip:

Robert with another good sandie:


Yours truly with white bass:

The sandies were big and the Master put almost all the fish in the boat. Dennis has his technique down to an art. Rob and I enjoyed the day and was taught a new way to put fish in the boat. Thanks Dennis for the company and the day on Cedar Creek. Hope you can join us on Whitney in the near future.
