Fishing Goals 2020

Recommended Posts

Providing they dont restrict state or local Hwy travel between Iowa and Arkansas... I'll pack up some lysol/or spray bottle with Bleach (to sray down the keypads on the gas pumps) and still hit my place in Mtn Home every other month providing Mom and family are healthy.
I figure I can be just as sequestered there and on the river as I can in the house here.

I wish I could....

Dang Covid-19 is changing things daily. I hope my plans aren’t dashed on the rocks of public safety. 

 

This is my concern about my one specific fishing goal this year: a June trip to Montauk State Park. My guess is that we won't be dealing with the virus by then, but you never know.

Caught an 11 lb. hybrid today in one of the Bella Vista lakes.  Caught 20 total, it was crazy, never have caught them like this.  They were on a windy bank in 2-4 FOW.  11 lber was a personal best.  Caught an 8 and several in the 5-6 lb. range.  3.3 Keitechs on 1/4 oz heads, spinning tackle.  They are strong fish.

..and I bet you are still smiling.  Love catching big hybrids; the big gals will validate whether you have good equipment.

I caught 11 (or that’s how many I remembered to click) in about 2 hours. 2.8 Keitech on 1-4 oz Guppy heads. That’s a tough little hook. 
I used up 8 bodies catching multiple fish on most of them. I had 2 at the most that I only caught one fish on before they were toast. I also had a Big White Bass and a Big Spotted Bass in the mix.

Yessir, Guppy heads were what I was using too.  Had a few Keitechs torn up also.  

Fished the same area I caught the hybrids in the day before and caught largemouth on the Keitechs, also one 15" crappie,  darn Keitechs are just a good bait.

Cajunangler had success with other lures. I saw no need to change what I was doing. Z man stuff worked. 
I tried Topwater and only got one swirl behind my bait. I tried multiple walk the dog baits.

johnny threw a jerkbait and the fish broke the treble hooks off of it.
