The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

Recommended Posts

i really love the cold weather months - family times, good eating, and fish stacked up in predicatable spots.  any fishing i do may through october (which usually isn't much) is just fun fishing for numbers.  but November signals the beginning of winter pattern around here and time to break out the slow stuff in search of big fish.  my work schedule got me off to a late start this year, but i managed to get out last saturday and get one that went nearly 6 out of a brush pile adjacent to a secondary creek arm to kick off the month.  a few dinks rounded out the day and kept things interesting.

 

but i knew this would be the week to be out there with that big full moon hanging in the sky.  fortunately i have a boss that understands my addiction and she let me off tuesday afternoon and yesterday afternoon.  the fishing was incredible.  with the full moon feed on, a few smaller fish were still there for the taking in 2-8 fow on spinnerbaits and rattlebaits.  but the best fishing for numbers and quality was on deep timberlines in 8-15 fow using slow presentations.  concentrating on irregularities in standing timber, i managed a 4 and a 5 yesterday, plus one i estimated to be 6 or 7 that i let get off having a little too much fun playing around with it once i saw it wasn't a giant.  when it was over, i was blessed to have 28 fat green fish visit my little jonboat briefly before release. 

 

yesterday i only got to go for a couple of hours, but it was time well spent.  again focusing on the deep stuff, i managed 19 fish raging from dinks to average with a nice 6-5 kicker to end the day.   this was perhaps the fish i dumped the day before as i stuck her only a few yards from where i lost the good one on tuesday and she had a fresh hook mark in her mouth.  or maybe someone else had caught her before and released her.  either way i was thankful for her and i put her back too. 

 

there is still time to take advantage of this full moon.  i wish everyone a happy and blessed thanksgiving period full of good times, great meals, black friday fishing deals, and of course plenty of bass action.
