Dink day for tournament practice


Recommended Posts

Man I just couldn't figure the bigger fish out today, I have a tournament next sunday on my home lake and I figured I'd get out and do some scouting and practice for it, my home lake is a man made typical homeowner impoundment with tons of docks and grassy coves but it seems like the big fish were just nowhere to be found. I probably caught like 12 or 13 fish below a lb though which was pretty weird, have any of you guys had those type of days where only the little ones are consistently biting? I caught most of them on T rigged plastics and ned rigs, we had some nasty thunderstorms roll in Saturday evening and I think it shut down the bite for sunday (yesterday now)

not sure which specific lake you're talking about, but if you're in BBA I see where the June 25th tournament is (and its up your way).

 

I posted it in another thread but its been an odd period after the spawn (which lasted more than a month over here) and the water temp just stayed at early May temps until the middle of June.  Its been slow for a lot of people the past couple weeks.  The good news is that there are thunderstorms forecast for the next week and right through your tournament.  I always find that the storms and low light get the fish out of their funk and they start doing different things.  That's not great if you're on a good pattern, but right now the pattern is crap so let's change it up.

It's on a private lake in West Milford NJ. The Property owners association has it every year and I usually go out with someone from the local club. I'm going there saturday to practice again, after that I have another tournament in the same area but I'm co angling on a friend's boat, Greenwood lake NY.
