My daughter and I took advantage of the nice weather on Sunday and decided to go fishing on Fayette and I‘m glad we did. She had oh Dad two to nothing with in the first half hour. But after I figured out where the fish were biting, and what they were feeding on is when I should have changed out her bait. I suppose I got so caught up in the action (self centered), I didn’t even think about it till later on in the day. But I look forward to taking her back out again, we had a great time.

Over all we boated some where close to 25 fish. After we had reached twenty fish, Mariana quit keeping up with the count.

This was her first catch of the day. I guess we had been on the water for about ten minutes max.

This one was my first catch.


Here’s my second catch.


She took a lot of pictures, so I'll post up a few more.










She just missed the big jump on this shot.

Here's a few more I didn't post.
I threw a crank bait, spinner bait, and fished a little plastic, but everything I caught was caught on a top water bait in 1 to 4 feet of water. It was a blast.

Doug, what time of day was that topwater bite?
All day long my friend. When I would pitch it up close to the reeds, I would let it sit there for a few seconds, and then give it one good pop and let it sit. That one pop called the fish out of the reeds. You could see them bumping the reeds as they came out to investigate the commotion. Then I would give it three little twitches like walking the dog, let it sit, and the next time I twitched it, they hammered it. Even where there were no reeds but patches of grass, the bass would shoot out of the grass and get it.

After looking at our up-coming Saturday and Sunday weather forecast, it looks like there should be another good chance of some all day long top water action on Fayette. So I guess I’ll have to make another run out there just for grins. Man, there’s nothing better than those good old top water blow ups.

Last trip, the fish were coming completely out of the water with the bait in their mouth. You had to wait a second or two till they fell back into the water before setting the hook. After that, it was nothing but pole bending acction.
