Campbell Point, 6-2-17

Recommended Posts

Enjoyed a relaxing day on the water with top-shelf OAF member and contributor Quillback. We had hoped to get a bit earlier start but encountered a damsel in distress at Seligman, so QB jumped on the flat tire change while I pumped gas and we were off and running in no time. Despite the delay, QB managed a 3.5-pound LM with a topwater on his VERY FIRST CAST, which some including myself consider to be a major no-no. Didn't seem to hurt, though, as he went on to boat a couple more decent fish on the TW and had another three or so come unbuttoned on the way to the boat.

We hopscotched an area roughly from Campbell Point to Baxter, finding lots of fish on points. Deep bite was nonexistent for us, as nearly all of our bites came in water 1-15 feet deep. Jig ended up being the top producer, although fish were also landed on a shaky head and spinnerbait.

Ended the day at 2 p.m. with 24 total, of which 12 were keeps for a solid .500 batting average. Best five right at 15 pounds.

I don't know where Champ is coming up with this "relaxing" stuff, we fished hard dadgummit!

Joking aside, it's always a pleasure to fish with Champ, I always learn a thing or two out there on the water with him.

First time for me in the Campbell Point area, it is really a beautiful section of the lake, not a lot of development that is visible from the lake, and the green hills are pretty this time of year.

Very nice outing!! thanks for the report...only im kind of disturbed as there was no mention of NED...lol

I left the Ned stuff at home, probably could've caught a few on them, but wanted to do fish some other stuff.  Didn't want to slow Champ down either, he doesn't let any moss grow on the bottom of his boat.  :D

Great job Champ and Quill, good to see you caught some on top water.  Even that Quill tried to jinx your trip with a fish on the first cast!!!:D

Hey Bo, caught several fish on one of your Nutech jigs. 

i know of a couple of people that have been catching quite a few on the GrassJig, and they have also been getting some on deep crankbaits.  seems that points have been what have been working for them.

the last time that i have been was right before the lake level blew up.  just have been too busy trying to keep up with business, and grass mowing.  now, i have linda on the list because she had knee replacement on tuesday, and i need to be around to help her get around and to be around in case she might fall.

it will soon be too hot for me to enjoy day fishing, and night fishing will not be very good until the lake gets back down just a bit lower, and then there will be a limited number of places that will work after dark.  miss being on the lake though.

bo
