Sunday. Cold front, wind, 61 degree water was warmer than the air. After detecting a shift in location of the bass Saturday I came rigged for the ground game, with a jig and pig and shaky head, also a deep diving jerkbait tied on which I just receieved and wanted to play with. I started back in the deep corner in the same spot I hooked up with the lunker yesterday that got away. Nothing on either jig for an hour or so along several spots back there. I know the area is holding fish and the wind is blowing to the shore so I took off the jerkbait and tied on a spinner and worked open water too. 90 minutes or so with that still nothing. Decided to move to shallower structure on the western shore and got a dink on the spinner. After that I kept hitting similar spots with the spinner, a Fred roumbanis boom boom plus swim jig, and the shaky head (lost my 2 lead jig n pigs on the rocks and decided to sit on my tungsten). Picked up 4 or 5 more fish, all presentations contributed. Best was on the shakyhead and it was a fun battle. When my lure hit the water I noticed it draped over something which I figured was rock and going to saw me off. At the same time the lure got smashed as soon as it hit water. Turned out it was a tree branch I cast over and had a good time horsing him back over it and out of his corner. Males Seem a bit bigger this year so far btw.
Last fish was a dink, tore up the power worm and i had to pick up the gf from work so I bit the head off (the worm) and threaded it back in the shaky head like a grub and trolled it to the docks. Right by the very slight point by the boathouse it was crushed. After a couple second stalemate battle whatever it was came loose. Bent up the jig pretty nice though.
Started as a brutal cold front with strong northerly winds and no action. Soon as the wind let up and thing calmed down it started up quick. Seems they are eager to get things going, looking forward to the long weekend and bringing the lady out on the boat.
