After the Front on the Upper End.

When I walked out the door this morning, I immediately noticed how much cooler it was than Friday morning. I also noted the wind was from the Northeast. I decided to fish despite the front that had come through.

I started on the same flat that had been kind to me Friday. No fish from 5:30 to 6:00, not even a swing and miss. Then at 6:00, it was like someone had flipped a switch. In the next hour I caught 13 fish on topwater, three of which were picture worthy. My Boga grip said the largemouth weighed 2.5 pounds. Note the inhaled bait. The front treble hooked the fish well back in the mouth. Fortunately, I was able to extract the lure without damaging the gills.

At 7:00 that someone flipped the switch again.

About an hour and a half later I was on the flat at the mouth of the Roaring River. Fish began chopping shad on the surface. I got the  topwater out to them and had not walked it more the three steps, when a near picture worthy spot hammered it.

Total of 14 fish with three keepers. I'll take that.

Back at the marina by 11:00.
