BASS!!! HOORAY LAKE ARLINGTON!!

Jun Fri 27, 2014 3:45 pm

Havent seen a post on lake arlington for awhile so I decided to take my chances of getting skunked. Got there after work around 4ish. Again sun was out, mid 70's . Water clarity was poor and to be honest it didnt look very good around the lake either. Garbage allll over the place near and beer cans IN the water. I cleaned the best I could picking up water bottles, chip bags, worm containers, etc. Weeds still look very dead all around the lake. Took a spinning set up with bubble gum senko texas rigged and a spinner on the baitcaster. Found a very small patch of green weeds at the very end of the lake (opposite end of parking lot).

Decided to throw the yellow and green spinner bait on the baitcaster (6'6 fast action reel). Fan casted and retrieve was normal. Got a nice little tick of the line and the fight was on. Pulled up on a little chunker bass!! The rest of the afternoon was all pan fish not ever worth showing. Excited to finally catch and post a fish in lake arlington!!

Way to go get them, Cuba! Lake Arlington used to be such a fun place to go but the past few years the water has gotten funkier and funkier. I have no idea what the deal is, but I sure wish it was like it was 10 years ago.
