My secret lake didn’t disappoint.

I couldn’t fish Saturday because my allergies were epic.  I thought I had Covid!  I didn’t, and my allergy med finally got  the upper hand. I told myself, “okay D-B, set the alarm for 3:30 am; and if you feel fine - go!”


I woke up before my alarm and my cough was kinda gone.  My eyes were red, but I figured I don't understand?  I got eye drops from doc anyways. 

I drove and drove and got to the ramp.  It was empty. I paid my fees and launched kayak. I cross the lake and got one dink.  I came back across, and my instinct was, “why did I leave?”  I went back.  Water was super clear. I could see the lake bottom 11 feet down. I just started casting far.  It was dink-fest but I stayed with it. The occasional 3lb fish would bite.  I fished and fished.  At 9:30, the dinks left and nothing but 3’s and 4’s were there. It turned on.  I was catching.  A couple of fly fishing guys were also catching.  One of them yells. ‘Looks like we’re invited to brunch!”  It was so fun. The bass boat guys didn’t catch. I think the fish were wary of their boats in the clear water.   Dunno. 

at noon, I called it. The dinks decimated my bait supply anyways.  I got them on creatures, cranks…and one jig fish. I think I got 10 3-4’s and countless dinks. Lake was en fuego.   As a bonus, I was surrounded with a herd of 200ish elk.  It was stunning.  And some bird of pray kept dive bombing fish around me.  It looked like an eagle. 

I loved fishing solo today.  No pressure of hoping my friends catch fish.  It was nice making it all about myself.  :D
