Tough fishing last Saturday

Recommended Posts

I didn't have as much luck as other people this weekend when i went out to fish on this lake in manassas. It was raining when i left the house and continued to drizzle and rain off and on while i was on the water. One of the worst fishing conditions i've experienced with it being cold, the water looking like chocolate milk and the rain just comin down on us. I went out with the college buddies that introduced me to bass fishing last year so i had fun regardless of the small number of fish we caught.

Ended up catching 4 fish total from the yak, 3 keepers and 1 dink mostly off of a chartruese/black or chartruese/white spinner bait. This was the biggest at around 2.5lbs or so.

My other friends did alot better but they were targeting catfish and carp.

On a positive note, i got to tow their jon boat back to our launch area when their small trolling motor couldn't fight the current too well. Man was that a workout!

How long does it usually take for a large body of water to clear up after the raining stops? Is this something that varies with the size, and composition of the body of water?

Any suggestions on how to fish murky water or is it something i should avoid?

            Maybe I should have gone, it seems the worse the conditions the better I do (lately). ;)

With the cold front that moved through the area I would think the bass would have moved off the banks and into deeper water.

They may have also been on their beds, depending on the water temperature.

Hey, fishing on Saturday sure beat cleaning the house of doing laundry.
