|What awaited me when I arrived at the lake place tonight.|
Conditons: 70℉, Mostly Cloudy small thunderstorms coming through all evening, Light NNW Wind
Water Temp: 69℉
I wanted to go fishing tonight starting at 5PM, but small thunderstorms kept developing over the lake, so I just staid at home until about 7:40PM when I headed to the lake. It pretty much quit raining the second I parked the Kia and there was that magnificent rainbow.

|I bet he got a big fish off of those docks tonight|
I ended up just bringing one tackle bag, normally 3, and 4 Rods, normally 10+. It was going to be topwater or bust for me tonight. Should have brought a frog rod with too, because casting in the rice, pads, and reeds doesn't work so great with topwater plugs.

I made my way back towards the buoy and a got another dink, this time on the Yellow Head Plopper 90. By the time I got that fish off I needed to move back towards the buoy. While underway I made a cast 15 feet past the buoy, but only 5 feet from where my line passed it. About half way back to the buoy finally a good bass hit the Plopper. Then the fish started fighting towards the buoy. I kicked the trolling motor on high in case it made it buoy.

At least as many bites that didn't hook up.
