Twin Lakes Fishing Report: 5/1/13

Postby JasonN » May Wed 01, 2013 10:30 pm

Fished Twin Lake Rec Area from 7pm-8:30pm; mostly sunny; temps around 80; very light SW winds.

Had my mind made up earlier today that i'd spend the evening at Twin Lakes. Needed a break from the tick parade at Busse and other FP preserve lakes and wanted to put my Twin Lake season pass to use.

Started off throwing a Minus1 and Red Eye Shad and only found some mucky algae. Moved around and tied on a red/white Chatterbait and quickly had an 11" largemouth bass on. A few minutes later landed a 13" bass. A few minutes later lost the Chatterbait on a hangup and that would be it for the action for the evening.

It was an absolutely beautiful evening at Twin Lakes and enjoyed a couple of laps walking around the lake when I was done fishing, just to get some exercise and enjoy the evening.
