Great day on Chickahominy Lake.

Recommended Posts

Spent about 6 hours on the lake.  Caught a great number of bass.  Largest was a solid 5+ lb'er (dunno exact, forgot my Boga Grip).   Caught all on Rage Tail Space Monkeys rigged on an Owner weighted (1/8 oz) twist lock hook.  Fished the backs of wind-blown inlets in the creeks.  Hooked up in almost all of them.  Water temp up to 64 degrees.

My son holding the biggest of the day...

My God!  The kid looks like you!!!  :D

64* is super. Bass are moving and on beds.

Great news about Chick Lake being active.  

I know, from your past posts and the posts of others, that the Chick Lake fishing was not great.

Maybe will hit Chick Lake in May during the week.

Thanks Micro for the update.  :)

Looks like an awesome day! Glad to hear the water temp is rising.

I was just at Dick's Sporting Goods and had to pick up a pack of those space monkeys. They're a little expensive but, if they are anything like the toads they should be killer. Plus, now they have the coffee scent!

DGIF shocked Chick Lake again yesterday.  Biggest in Johnson Creek was ~7.5 lbs, biggest at Cypress Point was ~6.5 lbs.

Nice, Micro. What kind of weighted hook was it? Keel weighted? I'm trying to get a good picture of what a rigged space monkey looks like.

I've had good luck w/ these Owner hooks also. Not specifically used for space monkeys, but w/ swim senkos, flukes, small paddle tail swimbaits, etc.
