Lake Opeka Fishing Report: 5/6/06

Postby JasonN » May Sat 06, 2006 10:16 pm

I'm posting this report for Skippy69 (Alex), who's internet is down tonight.

Fished from 5pm-8pm, clear, light NE winds, temps in the mid 50's.

Alex hooked up with a family of novice fishermen and helped them catch a few decent bass. The biggest bass was caught by Alex which was 20 inches! Used a soft plastic bait of some kind (he can later clarify that). Total of 7 largemouth bass caught between Alex and his new friends.

Cool, I've been meaning to get out to Lake Opeka, got my 'family pass' paid up and reels spooled up! Nice to see that the stocking is paying off, too. What baits/lures and where? (when you get online of course)
