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 first.

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.
