"Get Hooked on New York"

Pre-July 4th trip Details
Name:Pre-July 4th trip
Created By:knobcreek
Details:Got out on 7/3/11 from about 9:15am to 12:30 on a local south shore park. It was cloudy with a little sun to start, pretty calm water. Water temp. in the area I fished was about 74 degrees. It got sunny towards late morning... First cast of the day was a bad one, as my lure got caught on my other rod behind me resulting in a bad backlash. I surprisingly straighted it all out, and after a good 5 minute delay, I got to fishing. On about my third cast, I landed my first LM of the day on a blue/black jig near the end of lily pads bordering hyrdilla. I proceeded to catch two more in the next 20 minutes, the third being a good 2.5+lbs. I thought it was going to be a very good day, with a good chance at a pig as I have caught some good ones here before....not so much. For the next two hours I threw the jig, horny toad (got a nice pickeral on it), spro frog, shallow crankbaits, and even a weightless senko as I got desperate...Nothing. I managed to land one more decent LM, a healthy 1.5-2lber with a little gut, again on the jig. On my way out, I landed another bonus LM, smallest of the day, a barely legal fish. Landed all five LM on a blue/black jig, and they were all very light bites. Scraped together a small limit, and showed some patience, which is unusual for me.
