Very windy lunch break 4-27-17

Postby FISHdank » Apr Thu 27, 2017 2:57 pm

Very windy and a little cold. Wanted to get out to opeka and hit the wind blown north shore on my lunch break. Spinner bait and wind blown shore cant go wrong. Got 2 fish in like 45 min and one was a dooozy!

Wow. Amazing you can still find fish like that in our highly fished urban spots.

Nice bass, sir!

That's a fat bass! I've been hoping to run into one or two of those during my occasional pond hours here and there, but have yet to.

Do you (you, personally) pay per day or buy a season pass? I still haven't made it there with the kayak.

Damnnn, nice work! I bailed on today and that's a spot I've been hitting too, but you obviously were rewarded! Way to go! :)

That's a legit Lake O Lunker. Glad to hear of things continuing to get on a roll.

That is a great catch for any lake especially one like Opeka.

Opeka is definitely a story of two sides, side walk side and golf course side. Always do my best on walking side early season. Golf course side can stay hot all summer long. Less pressure.
