Got two. I'll take 'em.

Postby toyasu » Sep Sat 28, 2019 10:33 pm

I was at the lake today from about 3:30 - 7. Only two fish, but at least two fish. First one was on a texas-rigged Strike King coffee tube (3.5 inch - Goby Lishish) and a nice 3-pounder on a white/chartreuse double willow spinner with an ExoSwim trailer, tail dipped in garlic/chartreuse attractant. The weeds are tough, but I found a good spot at the end of the long, wide section as it curves into the North end.

Those weeds really make lure selection tough. Wrangling two from Beck at this point is damned impressive. Rock on!

Nice one Toyasu. Try any top water baits?

I did. Buzzbait and Teckel Sprinker frog. No action.

Those are a couple of nice catches! For those weedy lakes, and during this season, too, a swim jig is good choice. 1/4 - 3/8 oz, with either a paddle tail or a single or double tail grub.
