Finally open and got out early this morning. Walked about 90% of the outer shoreline of the East quarry. Except the island that requires a walk across the logs which I always chicken out in fear of taking a swim. Weeds and cover is getting fairly thick. By end of the month my guess is it will only be frog fishing except on south shoreline. Caught a bunch of smaller bass and even a few micro ones. Walking back from the far back east side I tried one more corner I had success in the past and got hammered instantly by a hog. Choked my keitech swing impact bluegill flash 4" on a keitech round jig head 1/16 oz. Hooks are sharp and better be for what they cost. Didnt even realize i set it upside down with paddle tail facing wrong way but it worked still! I was nervous as hell when I got this hog to the rock ledge of the shoreline cause I was using the new line I never caught a fish with before today. Thought for sure it was going break off trying to grab it but it held thankfully! Went only 8 lbs on this p line cause last time I got 15 lb floroclear it was a mess on the spool. I would have been so pissed if I lost this fish! Had a split bottom lip. It was not a cut but a black natural split right in the middle. Pics below.. Hard to take the pics when the sun was glaring down and couldn't see my screen but a few came out okay.
