Hot n Tot

Senko bite was on

Recommended Posts

Sunday afternoon, went to the lake and almost changed my mind. Waverunners, pleasure boaters, skiers, tubers. They were sure churning up the lake. I couldn't tell you how many people came well within casting distance of me. Even so, I managed a few spinnerbait bass in about 17' of water. Water temp was 85 degrees as it's been hot here in Michigan. Toward evening, I started drifting senkos and was scoring on every cast. They were in about 12' of water, and this was an area I couldn't really fish with the pleasure boating activity a little while earlier. Around sundown I had my best bass fishing day ever! within 15 minutes I'd land 3 really nice fish, two being almost lunker size, well...lunker for me. I broke in my new 6' med Legend Elite spinning rod, boy is this thing nice for this type of fishing. Makes it even more enjoyable to fish with a rod like this.

Hey Hot n Tot,

Was that Senko wacky or weedless?  Were you fishing that spinner bait deep in 17' or near the top?  I live in West Michigan and the fishing is starting to get tought around here.  I fished a tournament on Sat and 2/3 of the field didn't catch a limit.

Thanks.

Cfruel: My senkos were T-rigged & texposed. And I was slow rolling a tandem willowleaf spinnerbait, trying to get it as deep as practical. With all of the boat activity, I figured the fish would be deeper, especially with the lake temp. up to 85 degrees. Later around sundown, I was getting my bigger fish in somewhat shallower water. I know it's been slow, the last two times out the fishing I couldn't even catch dinks. It just goes to show, you gotta keep trying as the fishing changes from day to day. Good luck, and keep casting!
