Indian Point area - 6/19/18

I haven't been out for a while. but got out about 7 a.m. this morning hoping for the top water bite I had been experiencing in North Indian around my dock - nothing.  I tried my long gravel points on the White that generally treat me fairly this time of year using drop shot at about 30 fow- nothing noted on the locator.  Tried a few more of my favorite spots (different type of ground) and again nothing.  About 8:30 a.m. I was thinking about heading home as I promised the wife I would be back by 9:30 to do something we had agreed on.

 I recalled reading Bill B. post earlier this morning so decided to try a few bluff ends suspended fish over trees.  1st one nothing, 2nd one nothing, 3rd one bingo.  Lost count but at times was boating one after another but generally no longer than 5 minutes between bites.  I believe I caught over 20, lost several on the way up.  Mostly LM, mostly just barely 15 inches, a couple a little bigger.  Never left that spot until 10:30 a.m. after calling the wife and getting a reprieve. All in 80 fow suspended at 30 ft.  over trees at a bluff end.  They were still biting when I left.

One thing I noted, the fish that hit came from above my hook - the ones that came from below, came up, looked and left.  As a novice I thought it generally worked the other way.

Thanks Bill B. and others that post on this forum for the information you provide as I need all the help I can get.

Bobby

glad you mentioned that you called your wife, or we would have to assume you just might be in very big trouble😂.

May I add  a HUGE second to that post.  I'm going off the grid here, but Bo brings up a very important point.  Us old and I'm saying anyone over 50 fools had better file a flight plan and pretty much stick to it as far as our loved ones are concerned.

Good Luck.

I got the best wife - I had agreed I would be back home by 9:30 so she could go to our Church to help prepare for Vacation Bible school and I was to stay home with our adopted 8 year old but I had just hit that good fishing spot so I called and she took her to Church with her.  I fixed it by getting the kid from Church as soon as I got back from fishing and the two of us spent the afternoon at White Water so my wife could work the rest of the day at Church.  Had a great time at White Water.

P.S. - I'm soooo old I have the wisdom of Solomon.😀

Over 50 is old?  Holy crap, I can barely remember 60!

Or what I had for lunch yesterday for that matter.....

And good for you Bobby as it sounds like you at least figured some important stuff out over the course of your years on this earth.

On the other hand, I'm still trying to figure out when the last time was that I talked to that ol' rascal Solomon!

RB,  There’s plenty of things you can’t do as fast or as often in your 60s that you did in your 40s. But fishing slower baits is not one of them.

Probably because there is none.

Take all the bad stuff that old people have ever told you about getting old and multiply it times like 13.6 million.

That'll get you in the ballpark of what to expect.

The mantra of us members of the real walking dead is pretty much, "Well, I guess it could be worse......"

We find that comforting in some weird, senile sort of way I guess.
