2 days out of Big M

Fished with Liphunter (Mike) Tuesday morning, we started at daylight and fished until 1 PM.  Real foggy to start with which limited where we went at first.  We tossed Neds for most of the time, found enough fish to stay busy, just couldn't get much quality.  We caught around 30 total, mostly spots, one or two largemouth and a nice keeper sized brown fish.  Almost all on the Ned, did catch a few on the Kietech and Mike had one to the boat that got off of a Rock Crawler.  Fish were located in the main channel off steep banks and points.

Today I was solo, got out again at 7 AM and fished until 1 PM.  No fog so I was able to motor to a timbered point that I knew was holding early morning fish.  Got there to flat water and a few fish on top chasing shad.  Threw a jerker at them, they didn't really seem to want it, but did catch a couple, one being a smallmouth that seemed to have challenges getting the bait in it's mouth.

Switched over to the Keitech, slow rolled it, sometimes casting to the bank, and sometimes working the deeper water in front of the boat.  Caught fish shallow and deep on it, several keepers.  

Read some reports on here of people catching fish with clipped tails, never noticed any like that myself, but I'll be darned if I didn't catch a nice spot that appears to have the top of its tail clipped.

There's a Keitech in this fishes mouth, you can just barely see the jig head.

Pretty sure this is a mean, fish was a little darker than the photo shows.

Couple more:

I did catch a couple on the Ned, but today was mostly about the Keitech.

Water temps from 49-52.

Thanks, but i didn't get to do day two. I had a very manly list of honey do's to take care of.  Which unfortunately included the fluffing of laundry< and the honorary scrubbing of the commode ! I had a much better day yesterday.

:haix:

                Your a good man Mike. I bet Quill helps out too. I for one am not going to let Mrs. BilletHead see this. Don't need anything added to my honey do list.
