Boy it was cold out there this morning.  When ice is forming on your eyelets and your fingers start to get a little tingly, you know deep down you wished you stayed in bed.  LOL

Try guessing the Pattern that Anglers were on

More Ramp improvements Needed

Summary:  SUNSET LAKE seems to be either Hit or Miss.  I know the Winter League Tournaments presented decent bags, but today everyone found it hard to find a decent bite.....if any.  Water temps dropped nearly 10 degrees from the previous week....and did I say "It was Real Chilly this morning."   Having not fished this place since the dam was repaired, I found it to be still stingy.  Judging by the community hole pic, anglers had similiar game plans. ...Fish deep and drift around till the air and water temps  rose some.

In All, 9 out of 13 SJHT Anglers caught at least 1 Bass.   There were only 18 Bass caught overall. SUNSET Lake Bass gave way to total of 29.80lbs caught overall.
The avg. weight came out to be 1.66lbs.   2 Angler caught there 3 Bass Limit.  Another great turnout for  a frigid and breezy morning.

Congrats to Jackson, Layne,Mike  Del Monico, and Mike Leach on your performanaces.

Next up is RAINBOW LAKE in 1 week.
