Got to Beck this afternoon and it was clouding up. It then rained for about 30 seconds and the skies cleared completely leaving a gorgeous day to be out. You would have thought it was summer.
As I walked out there were multiple anglers where I usually pitch a rat-L-trap so I just kept going around to the other side and started working a wacky senko. Not a technique I had much faith in tis early but I figured what the hell. I worked some spots and then on the way back I was out maybe 15 ft when I saw a bass charge from the weeds and nail my senko. Pretty cool, turned out to be a nice mediumish bass (not pictured). First senko catch of spring. I hope that means good things.
After a bit more work I could see people had left so I headed back toward my car. I grabbed my other rod and started casting the 'trap. I had a good feeling about it but didn't hook up. I decided to move down a bit as the sun was setting. I literally said "Okay, this is the last cast for today." And started retrieving the 'trap. I got about half way in and wham big blow up, another nice bass. It was a pretty good day for "early" fishing. It felt even better since I'd just endured a multi-skunk week. Neither bass were monsters but hopefully this is the start of good trends.
