After the morning rains finally stopped, headed up to Independence Grove for the first time this season. More crazy weather: Sun, clouds, 75degrees, 60 degrees, drizzle, downpour, then complete serenity. Actually wound up up being a very nice afternoon to fish.

Fished from 2:30pm-6:15pm. Started at the northern wooded bay area and no signs of life at all. Did see a man catch a 12" bass with a minnow though.

Then worked several other parts i've not worked before. The only fish I managed were two 11" bass, both on a Cotton Cordell Super Spot rattle lure.

Was a beautiful afternoon past about 4pm. And the winds died down to virtually calm. Saw a few other anglers out but no real results. Also, the action in the for north section of the lake is carp. They are doing their thing and some flew 1 foot out of the water!

Dave and Phil, it really was a great outing - even though the results were mediocre.

What was great about it was finding new places at this body of water and learning stuff from the conditions. The knowledge I gained from this outing will FAR out weigh the day's results. And will only make the next outing even better (i hope!) :mrgreen:
