Saturday Report


Recommended Posts

Donna and I fished from 8:30 a.m. to dark Saturday. Launched at H Highway (Baxter) ramp and stayed between there and SK bridge. Ended the day with 9 keepers and a bunch of shorts. Not to be intentionally vague, but we caught fish from 1 foot to 45 feet deep. Deepest keeper was our best fish, a 4-pound largemouth that bit a spoon at 37 feet in a dock slip. Productive baits included the spoon (War Eagle 7/8-ounce white), drop shot (watermelon seed Zoom Finesse worm), finesse jig (War Eagle pond scum perch), swim jig (Bass-X 5/16-ounce white with white twin-tail trailer), spinner bait (War Eagle 1/4-ounce green shad) and finally a Red Fin.

Best advice for right now is fish what the conditions give you. We started out fishing deep docks because there were no clouds and no wind. Moved a bit shallower as the wind picked up and were finally able to throw a spinner bait mid-afternoon. It's fall and there are fish at every depth. Surface temp was 64-67 every time I thought to check it.

The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.
