May 29, Friday report
Yesterday was one of those days I’ll never forget!
BCGS had a corporate trip with 24 people…..8 boats. We only fished from 2pm-430pm, but caught dozens of bass in the short time!
My boat ended up catching the most and biggest and we only fished one spot for the entire time!
So where was it? No big surprise. I fished the point and hump out from Bryants Grove boat ramp. We started in the little cove right a before the rock point, casting shaky 1/4oz shaky head(Hoppy’s shaky heads) with Zoom Trick Worms 7″(green pumpkin/purple flake and red/green flake). We caught 3 or 4 on the point, including 1 keeper. Then we trolling over a little near the PVC pipe, sitting in 25-28ft, casting in the direction of the PVC pipe. There is a lot of rock that extends out into the channel about 10ft-15ft. We caught 6 there with 2 more keepers. We continued down the hump casting on top of the gravel hump, dragging our shaky heads. We lost a few near the boat and boated 4 more with 2 more keepers! I started noticing a ton of shad skipping on the surface 50 yards on the flat towards down lake and rushed over to them. I tied on rattle traps for all more customers and we started casting to the shad. I after 5 minutes with no bites and no seeing any fish under the shad on my structure scan I determined they were just happy shad. I trolling back over towards our productive hump, starting at the red buoy near the channel and told the guys to keep casting their rattle traps. I tied on one of my favorite deep crankbaits and we all chucked our lures. In 30 seconds one of my clients had a 4lb+ on and I had on a 2.5lbs! The next 30 minutes we caught fish every few minutes with the same technique. After the feeding frenzy ended we went back to the front of the hump and started casting our shaky heads again. We caught several more with a few nice keepers! We had to get back to the dock(the guys company had awards for most fish, biggest fish) and turn in our fish. What a trip we had!!!! Fun, fun, fun!!!!
Also, the long point on the right going into Stewarts Creeks has been producing fish on Texas rig worms. You want to sit in the channel and cast into the shallow ledge.
Lastly, the island in front of Hobson Pike has been producing with shaky heads and Texas rigs in 3-6ft.
Go get’em!!!! Be safe out there this weekend!
