Fun Day

Recommended Posts

Cbass12 and I fished Wabaunsee Thursday. Never really caught them fast but it was very steady all day and the quality was pretty good. He lost a nice smallmouth right out of the gate and then I went on a tear. I put 3 keeper largemouth in the boat off 2 docks. First was a 4lb 4oz, next cast a 3lb 12oz, then a couple casts later a 3lb 11oz, all on one of my home made finesse jigs.

We missed a couple good bites and I sight fished one on a frog under a dock (really cool to watch). Then we had a little lull in the action with just a couple dinks here and there. Ryan got a nice smallmouth on a jig.

then another lull of nothing but dinks. Right around noon we ran back over to the boathouse to eat lunch and while I was still eating Ryan made a couple casts off the dock. I was watching when he set the hook on a really solid looking fish that I assumed was a drum until I heard him calling for the net. Turned out to be his new PB smallmouth at 19" and 3lbs 14ozs.

Back out in the boat we fished across the dam and didn't get much other than one skinny 17" largemouth. Ryan picked up another nice smallmouth on a rock bank

I switched to a big worm looking for our last keeper bite and was about to give up on it until a big fish ate it off my rod tip when I was reeling in. 4 lbs 11ozs was our big fish of the day.

Right before we left I finally got in on the smallmouth action with a bright red eyed 2 1/2 pounder.

Our best 5 were 20 1/4 pounds and all but the biggest one were on jigs.
