Fishing Report 4/12/14 – Tournament
Fished saturday in the OHPP tournament trail. We launched out of Shutes Branch. The water was stained to muddy due to the crazy pop-up thunderstorm from the night before. I would guess that the water was up about 1ft or so from summer pool.
The fishing was tough. Out of 40+ boats, there was only 3-4 limits brought in. We only caught 8 bass all day long but 7 of them kept. All of our fish were up very shallow, VERY shallow. All the keepers except 2 were bucks though. Our biggest fish was 3.5lbs. Smallest was 2lbs. Decent sack. All our fish were caught on aggressive baits. I’m more of an aggressive “power” fisherman while my partner likes pickin’ em apart with finese stuff. He really struggled. He didn’t catch a fish until noon when he switched to a jerkbait. All-in-all, it was a fun day. I know the Weekend Series champ had 25lbs of Smallies from the river in downtown but we enjoyed a 1st place finish with 12lbs just as much.
Tight lines, boys.
