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.

One thing I like about living in Bella Vista where there are a lot of really old folks, is that even though I am now 60, the oldtimers call me "young man".  

I got kids older than you.😁

Holiday Island is the same. Look, the way I see it, the myriad of aging problems can be put in perspective. I may hurt more than I used to hurt, I may be slower, my balance may not be what it was, and peeing is of major concern, but I am still vertical, I still love my job, I still fish, and no one purees my food.

I went to my 50th high school reunion last weekend in STL. I promised myself that I would not join in conversations where the folks talked about their health, aches, pains, medication and surgery. I wound up sitting by myself near the bar.

And probably had to listen to some young bartender gripe about how miserable his/her life was!

At least you were staying medicated.....  👌
