With the low water levels the last two years I have only been on the lake twice in two years but now that my home lake has caught about 7' of water I am back in business.
I tried to get 4 different THF and TFF members to go out there with me today but nobody could make it..........so I went by myself. I didn't have high hopes with all the new water coming into the lake and since I haven't been on the lake since last June or July I had no idea what to expect. I guess it must have been my third cast when I hooked up with my first fish. It was maybe 2 pounds so I took a quick pic with the cell phone and tossed it back. Maybe 2 casts later and I had my second one. Few casts later and got another. The first hour was incredible by public lake standards! I think I put 15 Bass in the boat the first hour and should have had at least that many more with the ones I missed and the ones that got off. Had one that was pushing 5 pounds and lost another one that was about that big as well.
After that bite slowed down I backed off to a little deeper water and caught the biggest of the day (a 7.10). Think I caught two more after that and then the wind died and the fish quit.
Now I got the fishing bug again!!
