First topwater bites of this year for me

Recommended Posts

I went out and fish till almost dark last night at my local reservoir. The water is getting that bath water feel, which to me signifies I need to end the day with topwaters. So confident was I that I had three tied on. A 3.57 lb, a 2.5 and a dink just crushed the Chug Bug. I missed another fish twice. I got a good look at it. It was in excess of 5 lbs. I also caught 3 on the Chigger Craw.

Check out the gut on the bigger gal. Unfortunately, she caught a treble in the left eye. So I sort of have her "tagged". I made note of that in the journal. Maybe we'll meet again and I'll weigh her again.

Sorry for the haziness. I have a waterproof cover for the phone and sometimes it gets a bit cruddy.

Thanks! It's the way I prefer to fish small waters. Seems to me I catch more and bigger fish when I'm in it. The downside is having to paddle and set the rods down and the sore tailbone. I'd like my next one to be foot-operated. But I'd also like a jon boat for cooler weather.
