Two Bites Finally - Prjavelin's Diary Updated 10/3/12

First thing, Im fishing mostly spinnerbaits. Second lure its hardbaits(deep divers trying to find the deep bass and jerk baits)
The main forage is shad i think. The lake has clamshells everywhere and a LOT of them. I bet the population of shellcrackers must be very healthy. Third, bass must also eat some tilapia. We Have a very very strong population of tilapia here.
the plants here are these: (both are always found in less than 4 feet of water. when covered by water these plants die)
here are two more pictures of two usual environments in the shore towards deep water, this is the usual grounds here:
clay bottom, this is the spot where I caught my first bass. it was flooded then.
now this is rocky grounds:
this is another shell we have(lots of these too) that looks like a garden snail:
the temperatures have been in the 90's close to the 100's degrees. I can see the bass splashing in the middle of the lake eating from the schools of shad but I cant seem to find them close to shore and I fish from shore.
It seems to me like im either getting a boat or something that floats or anything or when summer starts my season ends. BTW the levels are going down consistently. its getting pretty low

I love the picture of that rock line. Working slow-moving baits may make all the difference in this heat, even if you're shore fishing.
Just my thoughts.

I have also found that when it comes to friends, a good friend will come and bail you out of jail, but best friends will be right there beside you saying d**n that was fun !!!

5 times is not so bad. If you start feeling bad, dont'. I have gone through longer dry spells and many of us can. You might find some comfort to know that my brother went and entire season and a half before he caught his first bass by himself. It puts 5 skunk outs in perspective, lol. He lives in another state and I'd call him every time I caught one, lol.

Unfortunately I cant get anything that floats yet so Im stuck at shore. the life of a poor fisherman.
edit: Im making justice to my tittle of skunk master lol

here are a couple more pics of the lake.
many will say these look like many bass will hold there. think again. Ive never seen or caught one here(at least in the 4 months ive been fishing for bass)
are those holes bass nesting sites?
