Bonus Fish on a Beautiful Evening

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I was a little annoyed, the weatherman was telling me it was supposed to be a beautiful day....until about the time I got off work and then there would be a pretty good chance of severe storms. Whatever, since when are they accurate anyway? I hooked up the boat and headed out, staying fairly close to home just in the off chance they were right. I went to a small lake known more for numbers than size and despite looking like rain on the way over, I was greeted by clear skies upon arriving at the lake. Being clear, sunny, and next to no wind, I started out fishing some docks but it didn't take me long to figure out they weren't holding on them. Next, I tried fishing some cribs out in 10-15' and again, nothing. I moved back in towards the bank and fished in the 4-6' range on the submerged grass flats and finally started running across a few that were willing to hit a lipless crankbait ripped through the grass. A shower did end up moving through a few miles away from the lake but I stayed dry. It ended up making for a beautiful evening with all sorts of crazy colors in the sky. Fishing picked up and I had pretty steady acting for the evening. A few highlights included a pair of nice walleyes. I had never caught one there before and didn't think they were present in the lake so that was a pleasant surprise! I also took my drone along and managed to catch my biggest bass of the night (just over 18") on my first cast after putting it up. I'll add the video here later since I didn't have time to edit/upload it when I got home.

Put a quick video together of the catch of the largemouth. Not sure I could have framed things better had I actually tried.

Yes finally! I even got to fish with my shirt off for a while! My arms are finally starting to even out as my hands were tan, but from my wrists up were stark white haha. The Waldos went back to swimming. I was going to keep them, but in the short time, it took to pull the boat out the mosquitoes drained about 1/2 of my blood. Cleaning them would have probably killed me!

The drone video is pretty good.  I had some trouble looking for the frog and the fish until it jumped about halfway to the boat.

Unfortunately, I can't zoom with my drone camera and I don't have a good enough video editing program that allows me to zoom in. If you watch it on a computer and go full screen that should help. When I initially make the cast it lands a little about the middle of the screen just slightly higher, and when the blowup happens it's mid-screen height-wise and over 3/4 of the way to the right border. You can see the ripples of the splash more than the actual blow up.
