After an abysmal Friday night tournament, that saw us boat our first fish at 10:30 p.m. and nothing longer than 14″ made it’s way into the boat, I decided to load my main man in the boat yesterday afternoon and fun fish for a few hours. First off, the weather was fantastic…temps in the mid to upper 70s, slight breeze and overcast. I started off throwing a buzzbait around scattered grass and structure in 2-5 ft of water with no takers. There was bait everywhere and the gar were in a feeding frenzy. After fishing shallow for about 30 minutes, I decided to run to Jones Mill and try the long rock point. Again, bait was everywhere and there seemed to be fish under them, but nothing was working. We then moved towards Hong Kong and fished a couple of coves on the way. I picked up a couple of short fish on a T-rigged Zoom lizard. By this time, the wind had picked up on the main lake, so we headed back to Sister Cove. I tied on a Rapala X-Rap prop bait and went to work. On the first cast, the water exploded around the bait and a 3 pounder made it’s way to the boat. Two casts later, boom…another 15″ fish unloaded. I continued to fish the cove for another hour with no other bites. We headed to the cove across from the Stewart’s creek ramp and the wind was unbearable there, so we packed it up and headed home. Not a great day, but my little guy got to lay hands on some fish. He fished about 1% of the time we were out…the rest of the time he played Star Wars and the dip net was the light saber. 🙂
