Getting a "little" better.
We tried fishing nearer the south side, closer to the dam.
I've been focusing on finesse fishing. Have some light XT 6lb line on a spinning reel.
I've been experimenting with a GYCB 4" Fat Ika with a EWG 4/0 hook Texas rigged. Letting it hit and rest for about 30 seconds and slowly methodically moving it a foot at a time.
I've been focusing on sitting on points, right around the edge of any drop offs I can find.
Played around with a wacky rig and a drop shot rig. But I think I wanna focus on Texas rig's right now and build up confidence in it first.
I have only caught a couple of white bass and nearly had a widemouth in the boat but he shook off while he was up in the air just over my boat.
And all those were on crank baits, after I get tired of finesse fishing. The white bass were on medium diving spoon nose cranks, and the WM was on a cheap $2 lipless, and he was hanging around a rocky point late morning on a hot day, when the water temp was upper 80's in like 10ft of water.
We are now trying evening fishing. Rigged the daughter up with 8lb flouro and a 7" Berkley power-worm (ring tail) T-rigged (Tequila sunrise).
We went to a real rocky point on the north side just north of Rockledge. at sundown. Water was about 84.5 degrees. I had her fan out starting near the shore on one side of the boat while I did a Fat Ika out the other side. First cast near the shore working her way back she hooks a decent SM. We were both stoked. It's the best fish we have caught since I started bass fishing.
She gut hooked it, but I was able to perform successful surgery without hurting him too much.
We are getting a bit better. Caught a couple. Trying to perfect Texas rigged presentation.
Oh, and I hate fishing the main body of Lake Grapevine on the weekends. Too many selfish idiots.
