So I got up at 5 this morning looking forward to a morning in the tube and it was pouring! As I write this it is 0825 and rain is still coming down. We need the rain so I won't complain but was sure looking forward to feelin' the thump. But I don't fish in the rain in the tube. I sure hope it either clears up or tomorrow is better but according to the National Weather Service I don't think my desires will be met. Major BUMMER.
Flags, I must have just missed you. I launched from the beach near the bait shop at around 8:30 or so I guess, stayed over on that side of the orange divider boom all day . . . went all the way out to the dam just for some exercise. It rained early, then cleared up. Slow moving, no lightning.
I ended up with one bass likely just over 10 lbs. near the end of the day in the cove behind the restaurant, then another likely just under 5 lbs. Oh, I'd say 5 others in the 1 to 2 lbs range.
But! Over behind the restaurant just before I got off the water, about the time I caught the big bass, I flipped my Keitech out mounted on a 4/0 hook and thought I had a nice bass that turned out to be a large panfish. Whatever it is, bluegill, redbreast, etc., it had no trouble getting snagged on a 4/0 hook!
