Sunday: Silver Lake.
Ended up with 52 fish...including a crappie, a couple of Rockbass and 49 LM 9-18."
Fish were in the usual spots...drops/edges of the flats and the deeper weeds. Water was 67 when I pulled the boat.
Then out this morning on Golden for an early run, fished 5:30-9:30.
Fairly typical morning. Caught 16 LM all 12-16inches, plus a couple of
small pike (around 22inches).
Lost a really big bass right by the
boat...ran straight at me and I just never got a good hookset. One of
the bigger fish I have seen on Golden this season.
Tired and true approach: Flipping holes in the grass beds, texas rigs on
the weed edge and wacky worms in the shallow flat areas. Nothing stuck
out as far as the pattern. Caught some fish tight to cover, caught some
others chasing bait away from the bank. A couple of the larger bass spit
up some juvenile panfish on the way in.
Water was in the high 60's.
Moved over to Silver just before 10am as the bite had dropped off a little on Golden. Just like yesterday, started picking up the Silver Lake special LM size
class right away.
Despite the east wind, fish were very active, and a
bit deeper today. 6-8 FOW was the best action. We caught some deeper and
some shallower, but the fast action was in that range.
Caught 37 (4 were 14+) between 10a and about 1pm. Hit one school and
caught fish on 7 consecutive casts. Action was fast and furious at times. Had six double headers.
Empty panfish nests all over the shallow water.
