Fishing Report (11/5-11/9)


Recommended Posts

Made it down for a nice four day weekend and enjoyed the great weather. Began Saturday morning with ice on the deck of the boat and in my guides. Struggled early on but finally got it going on the football jig. Caught maybe 3-4 but no legal fish. Also, got a few on a grub and drop shot. First day only netted maybe 8-10 fish total.

Sunday was much better. Got the drop shot going and caught fish consistently in the 25-40 foot range on a Watermelon Candy Chomper Drop shot worm. Still no keepers. Also, managed 4-5 fish on a Wart once the wind began to blow.

Monday was a drop shot day. Got a nice healthy smallie on a drop shot next to Lunker Landing and then a healthy spot in Basin Hallow. Started throwing the Wart around Campbell Point and hit a nice largemouth on a windy point. So finally got 3 keepers and a bunch of short fish (12-14 inches)

Today was a short morning, but I managed 6-8 on the drop shot with one solid 16" spot that pulled like a tank.

Overall, it was a great trip! I really enjoyed learning more through trial and error with the drop shot. Anxious to get back at it next Spring and Summer! Thinking it is getting close to dusting off the jerkbaits!

I hope my little report helps someone, just save a few for me.
