Bugle lips!

Made it over to Big M this morning, launched at dawn.  Plan was to hit a few summertime largemouth spots and go from there.  Plan didn't turn out well, could hardly get a bite early, the exception being a carp that probably went about 15 lbs. that decided to eat my c-rigged craw.  First carp I can remember catching on a c-rig, and he had it in it's mouth so I can only assume he meant to eat it.  I was hoping it would turn out to be the biggest bass swimming in Table Rock, but I could tell after about 10 seconds that it was no bass.  Thought it might be a gar or drum, a little surprised to see old bugle come to the net.

Later in the morning I headed out to a place I have named "Keitech Point" and swam the Keitech.  Caught some there, made a location change to another rocky point with trees and caught some more there.  All spots, except for one 12" largemouth.  Caught a little over 20 and when I left about 1130 AM they were still biting.  Had a wake boat towing an inflatable couch with 3 kids siting on it pass by about 50 feet away and that made me decide it was time to go.  

As I cam into the Big M launch there was a white garbage bag floating in the water in the middle of the cove, I decided to get it out of the lake and dump it in the trash can.  Went to lift the bag and it fell apart spewing bottles, cups, and other trash all over the place.  Had to drop the TM and net as much as I could.  As they say, no good deed goes unpunished, LOL.
