Fished Beck Lake from a canoe from 6:45pm-8:30pm. Mostly sunny; temps in mid 70's; light variable winds.

Beautiful evening. Augy and I got his canoe out and went to work. Not much happening at all. As the sun was getting lower some BIG fish started to jump sporadically. We worked Senko's, Chatterbaits, spinners, Rapala's. Finally I tossed a Tournament Frog and landed a nice 17.5 inch largemouth bass. Augy then landed a, well, largemouth bass too. Take a look...

We were out on the canoe chasing the "big splashes". Finally wound up just north of the island on the flats and after several lures decided to cast the frog out.

The water was like glass, there was no wind, and the hopes were high, but the results were not happening. Then all of a sudden, there was a freaking explosion on my lure! THIS is why I love fishing! Topwater fishing is unbelievable when you catch a fish. I was f--king juiced all night and today after catching that fish. MAN... I love fishing!
