Busse Tuesday

Postby Rambler » Jul Sat 27, 2019 10:25 am

Met my best friend Tuesday afternoon. I got there late - around 3:00 due to granddaughter watching that AM. Took along my new Daiwa Regal mated with my relatively new 7' M Daiwa Fuego. Met my buddy below the dam between the north & main pools.

Threw buzzbaits all afternoon. Only had to use my anchor 2 or 3 times - it was wonderfully windless. Took our time working our way along the Higgins side & then over between the islands. At the north end of the channel I caught my only bass of the day - a 6 - 7" monster. :D My buddy caught 3 - no big ones.

After a while I cruised over to the little cove south of CWB. No cormorants on cormorant island. Great place to get out, visit the governor and relax a bit. Sat in my canoe casting once in a while, enjoying the music of the gold finches & king birds nailing bugs above the water. I'm strongly considering giving that cove an unofficial, WCF-only name. Unless anyone objects I'm calling it 'Rambler Cove'. Busse Jim gets first dibs on nixing the idea.

Finally headed back to the launch. Lousy fishing but an absolutely glorious day.
Keep calm and fish on...

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

Haven't seen busse since early spring. I'd imagine it would be busse swamp like it usually is this time of year, but heard they did a weed kill.
Nature and shit.

I've just refered to it as rocky cove, but
Considering how many times you visit there, you might call it "Governor's cove" :lol:

I second the motion.

Every time I read Rambler mention “governors” I hear the Michael Caine English version read as “Guvnah”

Hmm...not so sure about that one. People might think it's called that out of respect for the governor (whomever they might be at the time) & it would require explanation. :?

Wow - me & Michael Caine mentioned in the same sentence. Who'd a thunk? :D

Forgot to mention - my buddy had a buzzbait bitten off. At first he thought his line was bad. Further consideration brought the conclusion that it was probably a toothy critter.

We saw one of the eagles (not Don Henley) swoop down & grab a fish. It landed in one of the dead trees just west of the channel to CWB to enjoy dinner. Judging from the size & color it was almost certainly a carp. GO EAGLES!!!
