|Details:||After missing out Friday (took the day off) due to ridiculous heat, as well as Saturday, the kids and I were able to get out on the water Sunday morning. The water temperature was 84 degrees! I wasn't expecting much, so it's all good when good things happen.
We were fishing in 4 feet with lots of intermittent cover with no success (1 strike), we decided to move to slightly deeper water. We fished in 6.5 feet waters with two fairly large areas of lily pads near the shore, but with area's to cast in between. This was the sweet spot for us (relatively).
We caught a few small bass, including a perch. My son was using a variety of cranks, buzzbaits and spinners. I switched between my dark (water cloudy) and chartreuse spinnerbaits when sun came out from the clouds. I used a slow to moderate retrieve, while waiting a second or two BEFORE I started.
If you notice the waterline in the pic, good for you, please be respectful. It is not over-fished and I'd like to keep it that way. It was a good day, and it's priceless when the kids see a LMB of any size leap out as you're reeling them in.
