Holey Land 11/15/14, Another Fun Day

Recommended Posts

11/15/14, Holey Land, sunny, wind NNE 7-15, water light stain, water temp down.

Went out solo this morning. It seems everyone was tied up with either football or family obligations. I had the first hour totally to myself. I went with the chugbug and had a couple of swirls but no takers. I always return to my comfort bait the stick-o and the bites came fast and often. I hung around the east lake because I was waiting to meet up with Bassin Lou and bother in law. By 8:00 I already had 20 fish although there were a bunch of dinks. It was nice to meet up with Lou again. After a brief break Lou ran to the other end of the canal and I stayed out west. Catching remained consistent all morning with long stretches of constant fish. Most were tight to the bank. About 11:00 I ran in search of a bigger bite. I ran up the north canal and got into some bigger fish. Here the edge drops straight down 6 to 8 feet. Bigger fish were caught at the bottom of the drop off.

To finish the day, I fished the huge rock shelf that is weed free, and only eight inches deep. Decent fish were moving around chasing smaller fish. With no clouds the water here was probably the warmest water anywhere. I caught 2 nice keepers here, and could not cast far enough to get to the others.

I finished at 1:00 with about 60 caught, with 8 in the keeper size 2 to 3 pounds. It was a fun day, lots of sun, and lots of action. It was great to meet up with Lou again, and meet his partner. Lures used: Chug bug, Fluke, trick worm, wacky worm,stick-o, creature bait and u-vibe.

Dang lmao I must have missed you guys. I got the tracker running and took the wife out I hit the ramp at the east lake about 1:00 pm. Had a late start. Caught a few males up shallow. Looks like the fat girls are staging for the spawn but not up on the beds yet . wish I could have said hello to you guys

Lou left early, but I was at the ramp at a little after 1:00.   Good luck, it was an interesting day.

Oh man, we just missed each other. However I was really close. I just launched right over where the construction of the new flood station is being done at the entrance of Holeylands.

Isn't November a little early for pre-spawn staging?

IMO. Not for FL.  Especially way south. Any cool down then warm up, around the full moon, will trigger a wave of fish to occupy the shallow.
