December 19, Big M area

Recommended Posts

A cloudy day with a little breeze.  Motored over to a little cove to see if a steep bank in the back held any Ned fish.  Did not get any Ned bites, but saw some top water activity so I tossed a small pencil popper at them, caught maybe half dozen short fish on the popper before they got tired of it.  Kind of neat to catch some top water fish this late in the year.

Started moving around trying steep banks and points, caught some fish here and there, varying depth ranges, 5-20 FOW, mostly on the Ned with one meanie coming on a jerkbait.

Finished with 16 bass, one keeper largemouth. 

After backing the trailer into the water, saw a bass chasing top water in the Big M cove, untied the boat, dropped the trolling motor, and inched over to where the action was.  Threw the popper at him, and got the classic v-shaped bulge in the water as the bass approached from 10 feet away.  It slurped the popper, I brought him to the net, short spot, but I bet it weighed two pounds, very fat fish.  Neat way to end the day.

WT 50.

I did get a "slam".

Quill, thanks for the report. Always keep that top water tied on. You never know. Great pictures.

I talk to a retired gentleman that fishes the area regularly and he gets a few in the 8-10 lb. range every winter.  They are there for sure.
