Indian Point - 2 days, 2 bites

Recommended Posts

Right off the bat -- refer to what Bill's recent post suggests if you want to target future fish.  I hate tracking bait fish spread over miles, and drop shotting in trees... so I'm useless for reference if there's a  regime change in baits.  If I were a lawyer, this post is probably for historical, documentary purposes only.

Wednesday's outing started around 7, got lame by 10, and was finally terminated in favor of lunch prior to 11.  Boat in 18-20 depending on incline, cast in front of trees (or submerged bushes), slow retrieve, and wait for bite.  Main lake points were best, but could scrape a few off of secondaries close to the same spawning pockets.  21 bass, greater than 2/3 were keepers, plus another >10" goggle eye in an entirely different spot.  All on ned.  Bite was good morning and evening.

Today was work.  Started by heading to a near creek point with adjacent spawning pocket.  I was drawn into the pocket by a few sporadic blow-ups, but had zero luck on towpater (surge shad and plooper).  I got one via a keitech by casting near a blow up.  The next 4 came on the ned, followed by one on a tube, boat in 15-20, casting to the shore.    Standing on the trolling motor throttle @ 50% just to stay still is what finally encouraged me to throw in the towel and get lunch.  We all went back out for about 45 minutes prior to this evening's rain -- one ned fish to show for our efforts.  All in, neither swimming presentations, nor the ned, produced many fish today.

Well you caught a goggle eye, one of the tougher species to catch on the Rock.  

Next April i'm going to take you goggle eye fishing around the dam KC area and get that Monkey off your back.  Count on it.

Yep. Be glad to, also. One creek was just full of them, if you didn't mind fishing the deep trees.
