Details:It was great to see everyone again! Congrats to the Hawg Hunters that was an awesome bag for such a weird day. So we have never never been to this place, so we had a couple game plans in our head. We figured fish would be up shallow on beds or at least cruising. After getting on the water and fishing for 20 minutes up tight we threw that idea right out the window. So there went plan A, B, C, and D. We ended up using the electronics to find the 1st drop off with a gravel bottom. We were marking bait in the 6-10' drops so I started throwing a rattle trap (silver w/green back) and Damon started throwing a 8' diver crank. I hook up with a chunky fish right off the bat to only lose it at the boat. Damon then continues to catch giant blue gills with a few heavy pickerel mixed in. Damon got the first keeper, it came on a 8' diver crank off a point in 10' of water. He was bouncing the crank off rocks and small boulders. I then threw on a white single willowblade spinner bait and BAM holy crap GET THE NET............5ish lb pickerel WTF. We ended up catching 5 more pics so we decided to move to the other end of the lake. We fished the pass on the west side of the lake and I picked up 3 quick keeper bass on a 7" junebug powerworm pegged with an 1/8oz tungsten bullet weight. Funny thing is Damon's 3 year old daughter picked out those worms at walmart because they looked so pretty. I told Damon to buy 2 bags of whatever she chooses next. After putting those 3 in the boat we motored over to that point where we had luck earlier and finish off the limit. We culled 2 more times after that only for a few ounces. I suggested we go a little closer to the weigh in to fish the dropoff by the island so we were right there for 2pm. Damon ended up getting a good cull fish (heavy 1) on the powerworm at 1:55pm. Overall it was a great tourney for us because we have never been there before and the weatherman was completely wrong again. See everyone at Quinsig!
