Friday bass and rendering lard

Recommended Posts

Out at 6am off at 4pm. I don’t fish much at night anymore so I go out and render some fat in the heat. I knew it was going to be tough with the full moon and with that the best times were going to be in the hottest part of the day. But with the wind blowing pretty good across 85 degrees water it wasn’t so bad, but get out of the wind woooh it was scorching and that’s when the rendering began!!!! Started off the morning fishing and graphing structure. Caught 3 decent fish in the 21/2 -3lb range. Then it shut down I maybe caught 1 fish an hour. And they were just skinny little keeps. Somewhere close to 11 I started running piles throwing a 12” worm. Same result, small keeps. Then at 2pm 20 min of fun caught 6 all 31/2-4lbs then over again. All fish caught were in 20ft or so. I would pull up to a pile throw 5-6 cast then off to the next. Fish would bite on first 2 cast.

Not bad, I hear you on the rendering part, when it's hot out I look lie frosty the snowman in a boat I sweat so much.  Gets me in trouble when working outside occasionally.

I don’t fish much at night anymore. My wife and I usually make 1-2 trips to Stockton every year July-August full moon. She likes to throw a spinnerbait. We might just go tonight!!! She can catch’em. I used to have a jet boat and we would fish the Osage river below Bagnell dam in the summer. And it just about caused a divorce when I sold it.
