It is downright looney out there!

There are loons all over the place around Big M, most I have ever seen.

The fishing was pretty darn good today, if you like numbers.  I caught a little over 50 bass, mostly spots.  Had 10-12 keepers, again mostly spots, but one LM and a couple of keeper sized smallies.  Main bait was a 3.3 Keitech on a 1/4 oz head, and a few on a 2.8 Keitech on a 1/8 oz head.  Best smallie came on the 2.8.  Sunny, rocky banks with wind on them were best, fish were from 5 feet to 25 feet, sweet spot was around 10 FOW.  Maybe 10 of my fish came on the Ned, the Keitech was just a better bait today.  Ned fish were squirrely today, missed about a dozen that seemed to be hooked but would just get off after a second or two.  Sometimes this happens with the Ned, it's aggravating.

Slow rolling that Keitech just off the bottom.  

WT 51-54, water is murky, maybe 3 feet of viz.

A couple of non-targeted species that liked the Keitech and the Ned.

There was a big group of cormorants fishing hard on the James just east of the 65 bridge today.  Would have loved to hit that spot.  Birds know.  Seems to have worked for you.

Posted on another topic that we stayed close to the lions all weekend and caught a 3rd in our derby out of Aunts Creek.  Never left that area so saved some mo way on gas too!

Similarly, they were eating the Ned, small swims, jerkers and they really liked the a-rig too especially when that sun showed itself.

Funny what those little creatures will tell you if you listen...

Yeah.  The birds are doing it for a living.  One of nature's pretty reliable tells.

Nice! I tried sending you a message Quill. It said you can’t receive messages. Any idea why?

Mailbox was full, cleaned out some messages so you should be able to shoot me one now.
