In the morning things started slow with me getting nothing on the North side. I switched to the South side and did get a couple of bites on the clack/blue Pure Poison that didn't hook up. The tail of the Grass Pig Jr. got bit off. I switched to a black/blue Chigger Craw and got my first jumpin bullhead while swimming it. I got one more doing that and missed a couple. I switched to the Pure Poison and put a Chigger Craw on it and got 2 that way. I was going back to the car to change Chigger Craw colors because the one I was using only had one claw left. I decided to fish off the bridge and immediately smacked 3 fish in a row doing that including my biggest of the morning.
I then went to the North side and got a jumpin bullhead off "the juice" on the Frenzy Popper and the Chigger Craw. It was now coming up on 8AM so I headed for the river culvert. I might have had one bite there. Next I went to the Inlet. I got a pike before losing my jig in the weeds when I made a bad cast. I had a quality bass on the Chigger Craw jump and get off right by shore. It was at least 16 inches, maybe as big as 18".
The Evening Trip:
|Some grumpy old men tonight|
Willard came over an said hello and Mike B. showed up in his boat. I got a total of 8 jumpin bullheads and one sunfish on the Frenzy Popper. On the way home I clipped a deer with the Explorer.
