Thursday April 16, 2010 was another great day on the water. We put together 32 bass and all weighed over 3 pounds but 3 and we had caught so many 5 plus pound fish that we decided to put some in the livewell for a picture, ( I forgot to get them to kiss the fish ) and we would have had 6 in the picture but Ethan the youngest liked catching them but would not touch them so just to let everyone know he did catch one of the 7 pounders his older brother Steve Jr was holding.
It was a really windy day and just about killed my batteries to stay in the general zone where these fish were stacked up. I had some areas where the wind was not as bad for a break and we caught a few good ones there as well.
The day was pretty consistent and we would have had more than 50 fish, but they miss some. You have to really set the hook hard on these bass or you will miss more than you should. Heck, Ethan is only 7 but he did really well with setting the hook. Now, if only he will hold the fish…next year he will be in good shape. Great job guys and it was a pleasure once again to fish with you again for the last 4 years we have fished.
We caught most of the fish on wild shiners, we caught the rest on Yamamoto Swim Senkos weightless and spinning tackle including two 5 pound bass.
Till next time tight lines and good fishing….
