Well we just got back from fishing one of our favorite spots on the river.
We threw twisters, paddle-tails, spoons & castmasters. We also drowned a bunch of fatheads and used cut-bait for some cats.
Not much in return,,, 1 -12" white bass, some very small smallies, two too small walleyes, cupla 12" cats, cupla drum & 3 bluegills. And Paul had something huge on,,, for a minute.
Our problem was the 2 younguns THAT WERE FISHING THE BETTER SPOT up-river a bit!
They were catching fish left & right using a splitshot & 1/2 a worm,,, letting it drift around in the current. They caught the Same fish as us, just 4 times as many! They caught just about Everything, all kinda small,,, everything except that 20" gar that kept swimming around.
I kept trying to 'HINT' to them, about their better spot and how to fish it,
but they were kinda happy doing what they were doing.
We were soooo sorry to see those kids leave (heheheeee!!!
Pauls next cast,,, FISH-ON! A 15" white bass hit his castmaster.
My next 3 casts connected with 3 whites that were 15-19".
Our Drags were finally screaming and we could-a filled a DRUM with W bass!
There were huge schools of bass passing by every minute or so.
All you had to do was stick a lure in their face.
I wish I had a digital camera. We would'a whupped those GREENUP BOYS!!!
