Big M area 4/30

Recommended Posts

Launched early, and headed down the lake to a cove that had held some fish last week.  Started off throwing a Redfin, had one missed fish on it, no other takers.  Decided to throw the c-rigged lizard, worked it for a while, picked up a couple of small bass and had one drag puller that was on for about 2 seconds before getting off.  Noted the presence of many beds with bass around them, they weren't interested in the lizard, top water, or Keitechs.

After a couple of hours of very few bites, I decided I was going to have to go full Ned on them - didn't want to do it, but they gave me no choice.  I had read rps's report that he had gotten some on the Ned, fishing cuts and pockets.

So I did exactly that, looked for small cuts and pockets in the bank, and usually could get a bass or two out of each one.  Small fish, maybe had 2 or 3  keeper sized, but if they were keepers they would have been close to the mark.  Still fun to catch on the spinning rod.  Mix of species, spots, largemouth, smalls, and a mean mouth or two, caught 20 or so.

Wind started howling, I was done about 1:30 PM.

Saw WT's as high as 63.

Big M courtesy dock was messed up when I got back, looks like the wind had pushed it off the bank and slewed it around a bit, had to wade through knee deep water to get to my truck.  Fortunately air and water temps were warm.

Quill, thanks for the information. Nice color on that bass. Wading! Ugh! Hate it.
