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.
