Another great morning

Recommended Posts

Friday I caught a new PB at 7.1 lbs. This morning, I braved the cold for a 6 pounder. There was frost on the windshield when I took my daughter to school. I dropped her off and headed on over to the lake. This was a trial run for winter fishing. I put on my thermals and layers. I used muck boots to keep from getting the feet wet. I made a beeline for the area I caught the PB in. I caught a 2 pounder on the same spinnerbait. That cove didn't seem to hold anymore bass so I paddled down the adjacent bank, skipping a @cadman custom black/blue grass jig with a Chigger Craw trailer under the overhanging brush. There's a beaver adding lots of bass habitat. Just a few casts in and BOOM! A 6 pounder. I went on to catch one more 2 pounder on the spinnerbait and a dink on the jig. I was off the water after 2 hours and 45 min because my daughter got out of school early today. 

 

Funny, this fish looks half the size of the 7 pounder. It's actually longer with a bigger mouth. But it hadn't had breakfast yet.

I have next Monday off as well. I'm hoping for a stable fall weather pattern. They seem to be feeding up nicely.

I think the weather has been part of the problem here, nothing stable about it. Over the past couple weeks we have had one day 80 and the next like 57 then hard cold rain then 60 out then 42 the next morning. All with a mixture of real windy or blue bird skies. Can’t get more then two days with the temps within like 8 degrees of each other. I’m not trying to make excuses I’m just a bank fisherman and certainly no pro but it’s not making it easy for me to find or catch them. 

Wanted to add when I do catch them, they certainly seem to be fattening up so they are feeding just not we’re I can reach them I guess.
