Got a few this evening

Postby toyasu » Aug Thu 15, 2019 12:16 am

I got out to Beck around 5:30 PM and finished up at 8 PM. 3 fish. First one on a frog (Snagproof Bobby's Perfect), second on a weightless stick worm (the new Googan Baits Lunker Log) and the last one on a black and purple chatterbait. I also caught...wait for it...a gorgeous sunset.

Nothing big, but still fun!

I've caught many a Beck sunset, they are more enjoyable after bringing in some fish :)

Way to get on them, seems they went for the sampler platter tonight tasting a little of everything.

How are the weeds at Beck these days?
Keep calm and fish on...

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

Weeds are bad as far as the shoreline goes at least, in most areas making cating over them tough and bringing a lure let alone a fish back through them a dicey proposition. They recede a bit the further you get from the lot. I suck at approximating distance but i'd 15-20ft at shore some spots.

Good job catching a few in tough conditions. Fished my butt off for 2hrs tonight and came up empty :(

Oh, I’ve been skunked at Beck plenty of times. I’ve had more days getting skunked than catching something. A three fish session at Beck is pretty darn good for me:)
