Last night I fished the Monday night tournament from 6-10pm. The water was up several inches
from before I left for vacation…I guess we got a lot of rain! The water temperature was
85 degrees. Fishing with my good friend Ryan Davis we started at Jones Mill just as we did 2 weeks ago when we got 3rd place. What do you know?…the fish were doing the exact same thing! They were busting all around us for a hundred yards. We caught fish after fish, missing fish, and losing fish! It was an action-packed hour and a half
that ended with only three keepers in the well. We might have had more if we landed all the fish. We fished out from the green buoy all the way to the bluff wall. Our best bait was a weightless Zoom fluke in pearl color pattern. However, we caught a few on jigging spoons and A-rigs. We kept the boat in 8 – 40 feet of water casting to the action. They were in the channel and on top of the ledge
in 2 to 8ft.
Next we cruised down to Cooks and fished to the left a couple hundred yards of Cook’s boat ramp. We tried for smallmouths in 2-10ft of water with 1/2oz brown Hoppy’s spinnerbaits. After 30 minutes and no action we pulled
up the trolling motor.
Next we moved to the power lines next to Hobson
Pike and fished the right pillars heading up lake. Casting plum ribbontail worms on Texas Rigs and 1/4oz ounce jigs with green pumpkin swimming crawfish for a trailer we had zero luck in 6 to 12 feet of water.
We decide to head back to Jones Mill and try the night bite on our productive leadge. We slowed down with jigs and worms for 45 minutes. At 9:45 we headed in with not enough to amount to anything.
Felt great to be back out. Looking forward to this weeks trips and searching for the big ones!
