Friday Report

Recommended Posts

Fought gale-force winds for about 7 hours Friday and ended up having a decent day. Had five keepers that would total 15-16 pounds, best one going about 4.5. I'll take it for my very first bass of the new year. Probably caught a 8-10 shorts and lost several fish, including a couple of pretty good ones, while battling the trolling motor, 3-foot swells and the wind. Oh, did I mention that every fish was caught on banks directly hit by that dastardly wind? :D

Every fish was caught between Big M and Shell Knob on a Wiggle Wart on 45-degree banks, close to points, in the wind. Timber made no difference.

Nice report Champ! You're a brave soul fighting those winds. That wind can zap the morale from the boat VERY quickly. Especially if I have to nose the boat to the wind, and cast to the shore behind me........GGGGGgggrrrr........... :closedeyes:

Thats the wind you pray for on TRock...Best grub weekend I ever had was that year (I think it was '07) when the fish moved to the bank and the trees bloomed around March 20th-ish...THEN...the cold front hit Easter weekend (WE of April 1st) and the water dropped to 51 degrees and all the tree blooms died. The wind blew 30 all weekend and it was 19 degrees when I woke up Easter morning. My TM batteries would only last exactly 8 hours each day but we absolutely smoked em on a smoke grub...The next weekend was the Heartland buddy tourney at LOZ when it rained, sleeted, and snowed in practice. There were FIFTEEN bags (5 fish by then) over 20lbs. weighed in at the buddy....
