Found some deep fish today off a gravel bank.  They were playing a little tough to get on the drop shot, but switched to a 1/8 o Ned and did much better.  It takes that Ned a while to fall to the bottom in 30 FOW, but it was working.  Sometimes they would bite it as it was falling, or when I would slow roll it back to the boat right off the bottom, and sometimes when I would fish it vertical underneath the boat.  I was able to stay with them for about 2 hours and boated 25 fish.  Mostly spots with a couple of keeper sized largemouth mixed in.

Picked up a few more fishing jigs and the drop shot off gravel points and chunk rock banks, but never got into them again like I did with the schoolers.

Just a few more weeks and the rest of us will be able to figure it out. Fall funk 

It is all about being in the right place, I found them yesterday, if I had not found them in that spot, I probably would have only caught 5 or 6.

As we're heading down on Saturday for the week, I sure hope the cooling water gets them going.  I always start feeling this sense of desperation this time of the year!  Like, man, I gotta make sure that I capitalize on every minute and every cast cause it's almost OVER!  Who knows how many more days we'll have before those dang snow balls start flying, the north wind howls and it's too cold to even go out and get the mail much less go fishin'.

Being a little over four hours away makes it pretty tough to just pick up and go when we get a nice day or two.  I do envy those of you that reside full time in the area.  

And these 12 minute days don't help a bit.  Seems like the sun comes up at around noon and goes back down around 200!

My, how I hate winter!

Good news though - it's only about 72 days until the days start getting longer!!

even at noon it's still hanging low ! 

idk what's going on but now we've got sun shining in the house in places it's never shown before in the last 15 years. I'm pretty sure the house hasn't moved ?
