Got on the water about 6am and started catching topwater bass almost immediately by the moon light. As the sun started coming up the topwater bite really turned on and was catching or missing one almost everycast for a while. Missed alot of fish today and couldn't really figure out why, they would just explode on it a miss and other times the would hit at it multiple times and finally get hooked just to come un buttoned quickly. Caught our fish in two different topwater spots and found a good worm bite in the mouth of a cove in 15-25ft. Could have caught more from this area but the wind was blowing pretty good by lunchtime. Finished up with 64 between Doug and I and probably missed somewhere between 30-40 more. Fun day on the lake Doug, need to do it again sometime.

Like Chris had mentioned above, we were on a top water bite this morning that was out of this world. Around 6:15am this morning it wasn’t even light enough to see where you were throwing, but I told Chris were some fish were feeding, so we started pitching some top water baits in that area and it was on fire. The fish didn’t blow up on the bait; they would come up to it and suck it down. It was awesome. As it lighted up enough to see, then the explosions began. Then I mentioned another place where we could get a good top water bite, so we moved and the top water action was back on. Top water action slowed down so I told him where we could go to get on a good plastic bite, so we go over there, and BINGO, were back in business. I told Chris while we were catching fish, Chris; we haven’t taken any pictures of our catch today. Well, no more than I got those words out of mouth, Chris hooks into a nice bass, so I grabbed the camera and took a few snap shots it. Well, as it turns out, this was the only snap shot we took during this trip. I would say that the majority of our fish were in the two pound range, but we did manage to hook up with a few fours and threes. Over all, besides the wind, it was another great trip to Fayette.

Oh yeah, I had a weird hook up today. Caught two fish on a worm hook at the same time. Now that was weird. I thought I had an eight to nine pound fish on the other end, got it to the boat, saw both fish on the hook, and the biggest one flipped in the water and unhooked itself.

And man were they ever short striking our baits today. Personally, I think we missed just as many as we caught today. Some would hit at it and we would never even get a hook set, and I mean these fish came out of the water after it. Then there were those that we hooked, but they got off before we could get em into the boat. It was an interesting day to say the least. But like always, it was fun fishing with my oh tournament fishing partner. We haven’t fished together in some time, there fore I had a great time today.

We need to do it again Chris.

Fish looks big in that pic it was just a heavy 4. If it wasn't quite as windy we could have caught some more. We where on a good bite at 1pm in the afternoon but the wind wouldn't cooperate. Had a good time Doug we need to try to do that LA tournamnet next year again if you can fit it in with the softball.

In this area where we were on a good plastic bite, the water looks pretty good in that snap shot right. Well, it wasn’t very long after that picture was taken that the wind really began to pick up. So instead of fighting the wind, we tried to relocate to a calmer area with some fish, but they were dinks, so we went back to this spot. The wind was blowing into this cove so hard that I was having a hard time feeling my taps. So I switched out weights and went pretty heavy.  After doing so, my bite went to crap. Then I thought the heavy weight fished T/R must look so awkward to the fish that it was actually scaring the fish away, so I made a quick change to a C/R set up and the bite was back on. If only we had stayed in this area from the get go, then our numbers would have been at least twenty if not more than what we had.
