The boss let me out of the zoo early. Finished my shopping very quickly so went to get an oil change. Dang those guys move quickly. So I found myself with about three hours with nothing to do. Of course I keep a set up and gear in my trunk at all times because, why wouldn't I? Overcast with light winds and in the low to mid 40's. I couldn't pass it up, especially with the temp crash that's coming. If the cold season was always like that, I'd fish more in winter than I do in summer. With the rivers as low and clear as they are, the key is finding any decent depth with some color. So it took some hiking. But once I found it, I hooked up almost immediately. I got a hit and missed the hookset, then didn't even have time to finish saying "dammit" before I got a good thump and solid weight. First fish to hand was a good smallie.
Got a largemouth quickly thereafter and missed two more hits. I thought it was going to be a banner day, but then it slowed to a crawl for the next hour. Only got a rock bass in that window.
The last half hour brought another flurry of action, around 2:00 p.m. Another smallie, a crappie, two more largies, and another rock bass.
My last bass was a nice fish for this river. I thought I had another carp hooked from the pull.
Action was still going as I left and it looked like the sundown bite was going to be dynamite.
