Recommended Posts

got to lake at 2:30 the front was just passing thru.overcast w/ not much wind w/in 30 min. the sky cleared and the wind picked up strong outta the north. i ran to n. end behind spoil islands and found them chompin.unfortunately they were most 10-12'' dinks.i tried and caught fish on everything i threw. mag.11 speed worms,zoom ole monsters,heddon baby torpedo,and a rattle trap.biggest was a little over 2 lbs.about 5:30 i ran down to cross creek and they were just as willing.i finised throwin a horny toad in the matted hydrilla .bass were bustin all over,but they were leary of the toad.i suspected most were small fish.i had numerous blow ups but only about 6 hook ups.again the biggest being around 2 lbs. i did have a 3+ come outta the water on a toad but didnt take it.i coulda tried something different but i was after the big boys that live in that grass.

wound up w/ 16 in 4 hrs. and coulda had way more if i wanted to play w/ the smaller fish.
