Decent Day on Eagle Mountain - 09/27/19 12:36 AM
Got on the lake at sunrise and tried a little topwater south of the islands, but nothing. Proceeded north to the ridges/humps by West Bay and found some fish pretty quickly in about 10-14 FOW ... but I had to sort thru a bunch of dink whites and yellows, with a solid white about every 5th fish or so on slabs and Humdingers. I wasn't keeping fish but had probably about a dozen keepers by 9:30A. Kind of weird, but a cloud layer rolled in from the east just before 10:00AM and that triggered some surfacing fish in open water ... only lasted about 10-15 minutes, with these fish being average size, still fun to catch 'em on a clear tiny torpedo topwater and light line. East wind after the clouds passed shut things down. Went back south of the islands and looked around a bit at various spots and depths, but it was pretty dead. Headed east and found a few more decent size whites a bit east of Windmill Point. Also got a 5-lb drum here as well ... that fish pulled hard ... really fun! Nice morning overall.
