Area worked in red
So I was super excited to fish yesterday! It had been a couple weeks since my last time out and I thought for sure the fall bite would be among us.
Started off with a chartruese z man chatterbait with a grub tail trailer (wanted to cover water). For about 20 mins or so really working the bank and out deeper in this cove. After no bites I moved to a black and blue underspin with a blue creature style bait. Again worked the areas and nothing. At this point my hype and confidence was dwindling. I thought ok let's move to something I know will work....Good ole Texas Rig. Used a Yum worm with curly tail black and blue as the water is dirty less then a half foot viability. At this point of still no bites I say
it let's throw something I wouldn't normally throw or don't use a lot!
I tied on a spro frog and a black 75 Whopper Plopper. To my surprise I had the same luck
Defenity a frustrating time but me and the misses had fun being with each other doing something we love.
I can say no one else was pulling fish out either.
A few things I noticed:
-fish were close to the banks (I saw more this time than last)
Look close you can see this little guy above a rock
-Lots and LOTS of moss
I did see what looked to be a decent pound or two bass by the bank under the bridge. Tried getting him to bite but nope he told me to
End of the story.....Now Lip break out the printer as I keep my title of Skunk Master
