5/5/18 Beck and OCC

Postby Islandfisher » May Sat 05, 2018 10:50 am

I started at OCC around 6 this morning and caught a bass on my first cast using a generic lipless crankbait. I fished around the pond for about an hour and saw a few bass jump but didn't catch anything else.

On my way home I stopped by Beck and caught one on a wacky rigged camo colored flickshake. I hooked into another one before leaving but he spit the hook a few feet from shore. In between fish I snagged something and bent my hook while pulling it out. Since I was leaving soon I bent the hook back into shape with my pliers instead of tying a new one on. Boo, that probably cost me my third fish of the day.

I took some vids of the catches. Check it out.

If you're fishing slow and not catching anything, fish slower.

Good to hear the action is indeed picking up, after the positive signs I noticed recently. 8)

Well done Shawn :thumbup:

Love Beck but what's OCC?
Keep calm and fish on...

There's a fine line between fishing and just sitting there looking stupid
