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.
