Dire straits today
« on: August 18, 2018, 02:14:30 PM »

on water at 7:30.  no fish at 10:00.  uh oh.

finally found a pod of little smallies willing to at least nibble.  only got one to the boat.  okay.
not in jeopardy from my buddy Lip and Pepe LePewe.

moved to swimbait on a leadhead.  good for two more.

turns out that was it. but did get a nice blow up on the frog (matt).  but no stick.

water temps on Chickamauga were 84F.  SW wind at about 6-8.  overnight they'd been pulling water at 40K cfs.   so naturally it was lowered to 12K cfs by 4am.  just in time to shut down/impact that morning bite.

pods of shad back in the small cuts.  little guys about 2 inches long.  LOTS to eat for the bass for sure.

Glad you avoided the skunk.  I earned another one of those awards last week.

Enjoying retirement in the great Pacific Northwest.  I've turned into a fair weather angler.  Why do it today when I can do it tomorrow?

Now, singin' some Mark Knopfler, or Joe Walsh etc. while trying to figure out the bite. THAT'S a scenario I can get into.
