Looks like I am in luck I can run the big motor right up to the grass and then
shut it off seeing that I will be throwing way back into the grass and slowing jumping the frog into the openings
to see if I can get a Bass to jump up and get it.
"HERE" we go, one just blew up on the frog and with the fish in a ton of grass let me see what kind of fish I
got. It is a small bass about a pound and four pounds of grass, that happens when you fish in the middle of all
this grass. Will try a few more cast and see what happens, I always say the little fellows get the bait first then
the big ones, I have had anglers pull off thinking that there is not big fish in the area and I stay and mop up on
the big ones after the angler leaves the little ones are smaller and mover faster that is why they get caught
After working it for a hour I am giving up not to mention the wind is picking up and do not want to get caught out
on the lake when it starts white capping and the waves get 4 and 5 foot high. I pull back up to the ramp and get
the truck backed up and the boat back on the trailer and up the hill I go, at the top I tie everything back down.
As I start back to the cabin there is a gas station and I top off the boat knowing I did not use that much gas, but
always want to be on the safe side if I get out on the water to far and need that little extra gas that I did
not put back in the boat.
At the cabin, I turn on the news and see there is a storm on the way so I better
cover the boat for the evening, I hate to get up in the morning and have to sit in a puddle of water in the drivers
seat. Hook up the battery charger so the trolling motor is good to go for a full day and the depth finders also run
off the same battery.
Just as sure the weatherman said there was a small storm that came through the
night, but did not even wake me. I can take time with breakfast. Outside uncover the boat and check and make sure
the batteries are all charged and ready.
I think this morning will start at Dry Creek up by State Park and the Dam. That is
where I caught my biggest Small Mouth that weighed 6 pounds 4 ounces on a ultra light rod with 4 pound test line
and do not think that was not a chore after he/she jumped out of the water four times I just knew I was not going
to land that fish.
I named that point (STEVE'S Point) and have caught some nice Large Mouth Bass there also. I start off with a white
Spinner Bait right at the point where the waves are breaking at the rocks and starting back at the boat when "BANG"
a Bass loads up on the Spinner Bait we wrestle back to the boat to find out I got a 4 pound Large Mouth to start
the day off at six in the morning that is looking good.
