4/26 afternoon float

Postby SnagBros » Apr Wed 26, 2017 5:22 pm

Definitely my favorite time of year to fish Beck, super clear water, fish are active, and most importantly the crappie are big and eating my flies! Such a great time on the 4 wt.

Fished the entire lake today, clouds were in and out with light drizzles. Caught 7 lil bass burning spinners over the weeds. Saw a 4+ on a bed, didn't want to bother her and decided not to cast to her. Respect the fish and the fish gods will repay you my friends. Definitely a numbers day, no size. Cheers and tight lines.

Respect the decision to leave the bed fish alone. Good fish karma.

What time did you get on? I fished the dock till about 11:30am, saw a yak out there, was that you? No luck at the dock using lures, did manage a nice bass with a wound near its gill on a worm/bobber.

Hmm, I don't remember what time I got on but if it was orange then it was most likely me.
