Beck Report With Some Teeth To It (4-24)

Postby minstrel » Apr Tue 24, 2018 8:14 pm

It really had been like pulling teeth to land the seasons first Beck bass. Beside my non-lander like, a month ago, i've been coming up with the big nada. They are just not active it seems. I even took a fishing vacation recently; a vacation from fishing! After sitting out a few nice days I targeted a return today.

Put on the same chrome bleeding shad Rat-L-Trap and about six casts in it got hit hard fairly far out. Nice heavy fight ended up being this very welcome spirited prolly 'round 20"ish pike:

Figuring I was 'playing on house money' I spent the rest of the time once again not catching or seeing caught any bass. Hopefully it's turning around though.

Oh we all feel your pain Minstrel, it’s been a hell of a long January ;) hopefully we’re past it now (hope I didn’t jinx it) other than a couple of 30 degree nights it looks like lots of 50, 60’s and even some 70’s...if that don’t kick things off, imma take a vacation

The seal has been broken at beck. I bet things steadily increase next week.

Lake action has been slow for sure. Nice to see a well deserved pike for your effort.

Slow is not the word. Bass will be spawning in a few weeks but the water is still very cold. Going to be interesting.

Nice Pike
I spent half my money on fishing, gambling, alcohol, women and billiards. The other half I wasted.
