I did 2.5 hours this morning. Launched at 7:30. Air temp. was 50 degrees and surface water temp. was 56. Winds were S to SW and kicking pretty good. I mainly fished the sheltered shorelines.
I left the house this morning fully expecting to be skunked but I managed to land 4 bass and had one shake off. The fish were just your average Beck bass. 12- 14 inch range. I got one and lost one on an alewife colored Slug Go that was texas rigged weightless. I also caught 3 on shallow running ,4-6 foot range, square bills. One on a perch color and 2 on a black/silver color.
The weed kill from last year is still doing its job. Shoreline weeds are non existant but there are deeper weeds and that is where I found the bass. Running the square bill over the tops of the weeds.
I would imagine that the water temp has cooled some from last week. The water clarity was only about 9 inches so I could not see any beds.
I will also add that this weather blows. It seems like we can not get into a sustained warm up and the wind just won't quit.
With the rivers blown out again it looks like lake fishing for me for a while.
Hey Marcus I might pony up the dough for that Opeka pass.
