Wet and Wild Friday

Recommended Posts

Last week I decided to get some fishing in before the wave of city-iots hit full force. It had been a while since I took my aunt fishing, so I had arranged for her to meet me after work as I was going to take her to one of my favorite lakes to fish. It's a fairly small lake tucked squarely in the middle of nowhere. Rain and thunderstorms had been predicted earlier in the week, but the forcast had changed eliminating the storms and lowering the chance of rain significantly. On the trip up there it was cloudy and we had no more than a few sprinkles hit the windshield on the 45 minute journey up there. We get the boat in the water and head down the lake and the boat no more than sets down off plane when it starts to rain. I threw my rain gear on and started to tie some baits on my aunts gear. Before I even finished she had one in the boat and had a norther jump out of the water to try and grab her bait as she picked it out of the water. For the next 4-ish hours, we didn't waiver a whole lot from that initial pace. All in all we finished up with 29 bass 2 northerns and a crappie. My aunt lost another 4 or 5 and I missed a few more than that. All in all it came out to a fish in the boat roughly every 7 minutes. Unfortunately, the rain never stopped the entire time. My aunt was starting to get cold so we had to go. It would have been nice to see what the evening would have had in store, but it wasn't in the cards. Biggest one of the trip was the 18 3/4" that pulled like a freight train. Other highlights were a 17 1/2" that my aunt caught as well as a handful in the 16" range. All fish were caught on Big Bite Bait Cane Thumpers with keel weighted hooks.

All in all it was a great trip and I'm glad I got to share that experience with my Aunt who doesn't get to fish all that often.

 

P.S. It stopped raining as we were driving away haha
