11/8/14, Back To The Holey Land

Recommended Posts

11/8/14, Holey Land, 6:00 - Noon, Front came through, blue bird skies, no wind, full moon, water light stain, water levels up about 6".

 

Went out this morning with Dave(Canesfan), at first light.  For three hours we had the entire place to ourselves.  We ran to the east canal where the bite had been so good for weeks.   It was apparent early that they weren't as willing to come out and play.  We had a week cold front come through, a full moon, no cloud cover, and not a drop of wind all morning.  All these add up to tough conditions.  We did get some bites on a very shallow bite but almost all of these were dinks.  Since I'm not fishing a  tournament,  a bite is always better then no bite.  So we entertained ourselves with a bunch of shallow bites.  At the first pump station I hooked into a nice chunk deep.  There were several more chunks but they were far and few. 

 

After a few hours we ran to the big lake.  Dave mounted a comeback fishing the shallow edge.  We left early because Dave had other commitments.  We missed some good prime areas on the west side of the lake, but they will be there for another day. We finished with about 40 fish, and at least three chunks in the 2 pound range.  it was a beautiful day for the beach, but not so much for catching.  Cant wait to go again Tuesday. :happy-127:

I thought it might have been you on the east canal, I was the guy on the white/red/black nitro. I ended the day with about a dozen. Left early because I was experiencing some pain (ended up passing a kidney stone in the afternoon which I was waiting for since last week), I was gone by 11:45. I got most of my bites on the outside edge of the pads working a finesse worm real slow.

Wow... Backlash, you experienced "some pain" and passed a kidney stone later in the day!! Heck three years ago had "some back pain" and I ended up in the hospital. LOL... A week later I needed surgery to breakdown the stone. Fortunately, you were able to pass yours. I do not want to experience that ever again!!

Sorry to hear about the kidney.  Mother in law had them and said it was worse then child birth. 

 

Have you been out there before?  Sometimes they turn on the big pumps and the bass go nuts with the sudden current.  Sorry we didn't get a chance to talk.  Maybe next time!

I am curious during my Glade outings how many boaters I come across that are part of the different forums I am associated with. I am sure that I have come across several you over the years.

Hey Lou,

Let me clarify. I found out I had the stones last week on a trip to Georgia and ended up in the ER up there. They gave me some GOOD painkillers, which I'm sure helped while I passed this one (luckily I timed the meds perfectly as it turned out). Now, passing this one definitely went easy, a lot easier than I thought it was going to be, to be truthful it surprised me. The bad part now is I have 4 more to pass, because I had a total of 5 in my kidneys, I'm hoping these go as easy as the first one, but I doubt it!

Goodluck Backlash. I feel for you bud. After speaking to my Dr, after my procedure, I actually had 2 stones that were right next to each other. Doc said I never would have passed them because my ureter's are thin. Fortunately, I found out the reason I developed my stones, and fingers crossed that NEVER happens again.
