Eclipse bass:

Mostly a bunch a little guys like this.  It was pretty cloudy during the good part.  Saw lots of animals out and about which was cool!  Saw some new bigger females moving up to spawn on the evening of the new moon which was cool.

 

Got some good warm weather coming this week that should really help lock fish in and maybe even draw some bluegill into the shallows.

@gimruis: Jake, any boy worth his salt wears jeans with holes. Not those fake Kardashian holes in jeans, but jeans earned by runnin' and wrasslin' and fishin'. So, don't listen to Deputy Fife. FWIW, Sheriff Taylor took away Barney's bullet yesterday anyway.

The fish were a bit more cooperative today than they were yesterday. I got out for about four hours, put 8 in the boat, and lost two more. All were caught pitching flooded brush. The two lost were both dinks that came unbuttoned as they were sailing over my head. 😂 Best of the bunch was this 3.21#

If I could catch something the size of one of those "little guys" I would be a very happy man.

I like catching fish of all sizes but im always looking specially hard for them bigger ones on account of wanting to understand them and such.  Shame the sample size annually for my research isn't what I'd like but it's the yearning that keeps me learning.  Fishing is fun regardless!

Pat, you're talking about understanding females.

 

Females, Pat.

 

Good luck with your quest, but consider an easier quest first, like finding the Holy Grail.

Well you guys are killing me with all these pictures and reports......

Here in North Jersey we finally got a break from the constant rain we've had, my local river is just under flood stage.

I had to get out on my kayak for just a shakedown cruise to make sure everything is working

Hit up a glacial lake here as the temps were in the 70's with little wind.

Just brought minimal tackle as I got a late start, wound up going old school with a floating Rapala and landed a Pickerel,  lost one and had 5 follows, was just great to get out.

Out today after work on the bank. I’m guessing water temp around 55 based on last time in the kayak and other friend on the boat today. Both bites on a finesse 3.25” Swimbait on a 1/8 jig head. Both were also about 15-20’ offshore on the end of laydowns in the deeper part of the lake. Not giants but always fun when something pulls back!

@deep  I really dig your style, you seem committed to the big swimbait.  Wasn't around when you were posting before.     I haven't found anything in Bass fishing that rivals catching them on big swimbaits.   Pure adrenaline from the moment they eat. 

 

That last fish is a beautiful freak show.....congrats.

And I third it. Super awesome, @deep

 

I, on the other hand, am still fishless for 2024. Got a few bumps and tugs while on the river yesterday: assuming they were were little fish like chubs or bluegill or something that couldn't get the bait in their mouth. But I did see some beautiful flowers!

@IcatchDinks: I am so glad you are posting again. I really missed your posts while you busy with your newborn baby. Measured by weight, you're not one of Bass Resource's best anglers, but measured by your pluckiness and being present, whether it's enjoying the wildflowers or napping on a sun-warmed rock, you're the best.

It's nice to see the old and new faces alike and a landed bass is a cause for celebration in my book!  Yesterday it got soggy but we still got some in there.  🎣🎣🎣 This morning I skipped it because it was positively soaking but maybe after work....

 

Here's yesterday evenings haul:

Saw some mega giants hunting the crappie Jake ended up catching one of, but couldn't do much besides annoy them and make them leave 😂

Last night was odd for a few reasons. At this particular spot, and at this particular time of year, I usually start on the northeastern shoreline because that's where the pads come up first. The entrance to this lake is on the southwestern side and I'll fly right through it. However, every spot I briefly lit up with my headlamp on the way over was loaded with bluegill, so I had to stop. Strangely, the bluegill were mixed in size, from very large to very small. I've never seen this here. They're always found in like-sized groups.
 
Got a smack and missed on my very first cast throwing a Savage Gear pulse tail bluegill, but then I couldn't buy a sniff, and I threw the kitchen sink at them while slowly working my way north. Spent the next 2 ½ hours blanking, it was getting late, and I was really starting to feel it in my back as I'm not quite in wading shape just yet. Nothing gets me in wading shape other than wading.
 
I finally booked over to where I should have started in the first place, on the eastern side, touched my toes a few times to try to loosen up, chucked the 6" 6th Sense Trace floater, and finally found a willing eater on my third cast. Go figure. By then it was 12:30 am, and I need my beauty sleep more than ever, so I called it a win and boogied.
