Hit the lagoons from 7:30 to 11 with my bud Sean and I went 2 for 2. And boy what a great day it was for me!!! Boated the biggest bass this year! A whopper 20 incher at just under 6lbs and another 14 incher. All I tossed out there were green pumkin 5" senkos. My buddy tossed out spinners and white slugos with no luck. Sorry bud!!!

Launched Yonah (my canoe) at lagoon 7, I think, off Forest way and just south of Dundee. It was quite breezy about 15-25 mph winds which kept blasting us and spinning us around. Fished the west end of the lagoon, then by the dam and back east towards the launch and that's where both fish came from. 14 incher was close to shore but the big girl was about 30 ft. off shore in about 6-8 fow slowly grazing the bottom weeds. I had missed the first hit from this girl but tossed it right back in the exact same spot then, whamo!!!! The best fight I've had this year! Damn I totally dig fishing! She even spun the canoe around a bit and headed under the boat but managed to pull her up. Man I love senkos!!!!

You know... I'm so pissed that I haven't fished the Lagoons more this season. What a way to make for a great post Augy! Freaking AWESOME bass!
