Delayed start to the day as I waited for it to warm up. Got to the lake and it was dead calm, that lasted about an hour and then the whitecaps came out. I don't mind fishing in the wind when the fish are active, but it makes things tough when you're fishing a Ned 20 feet deep for lethargic fish.
I caught 3 bass the first 15 minutes of fishing off a rocky point. One was an 18" largemouth that was skinnier than heck, probably weighed about 2.5 lbs. Then I spent another 4 hours to scratch out two more bass, and then on one of the last spots I fished I caught 2 on back to back casts. Ended up with 8 bass, two of them were fat spots that were in the 15-16" range and I am sure either one of them outweighed that 18" largemouth.
All fish came on the Ned, mostly in the 10-20 FOW range. One exception was one of the keeper spots, I saw a fish swirl on top, threw that Ned on the swirl, it was in the water about 2 seconds and that spot nailed it. Not something you see to often when the water temp is 42.
Tried a float-n-fly for about 15 minutes, no bites on it.
Water temps were 42-43, and there were quite a few boats out there today.
