|Details:||I've been super busy lately, and my schedule coming up isn't looking too good either, so I had to take advantage of a free day to get on the water!
We got up early Saturday and were on the lake by 730. Having heard stories of solid largemouth fishing at this lake, we tied on some fall favorites: jigs, jerkbaits, spinnerbaits. We could have just brought 1 rod on this trip though, because all they were hitting were the jigs. I used a green pumpkin with a green trailer and my buddy used a white chatterbait, and that got the job done all day.
The bite started out hot, and I boated a 4-2, 3-11 and a 1-9 all within the first hour. My buddy then caught up with a 3-0, a 4-13 and 2-4. The bite slowed a little and we picked off a few more in the 1-2 pound range, and then I ended up with a nice 3-4 to end the day. We only caught 9 fish, but the quality was pretty high, smallest was 1-9, lunker at 4-13, and best 5 going 18 lbs 14oz. Can't complain about that!
As I mentioned, all bass we caught were on jigs and they were all off windy points. We found the pattern early and it stuck for the rest of the day, which led us to our best day on the water.
