Frustrated With Loz

Not only is the boat traffic bad, AND it tears up your boat (yep new chip out of the boat from waves and dock), but I have been having a heck of a time locating fish on that lake. Went today, postspawn, heavy generation, pretty predictable pattern (or so I thought). I jumped main lake points all day long. Bluff points, long flat points, channel points, with little success. Couldn't get bit on a DD22, only dinks on a spook, best fish (5-6lbs only bright spot of the day) came on a football jig. Only caught 2 other keepers to add to that......in 7 hrs of fishing when folks are weighing 20lbs in 3.5 hr tourneys......It's killing me.

I caught a 21 lb top 5 just messing around on some docks in between the crappie and catfish bites. 10" worm, or a BIG jig was the key to success, on a main lake point, at the roll-off to the creek channel, next to the roll-off into the main lake. Anywhere from about 5-25' of water, just work the flat and ledge throwing to the bank and dragging towards the middle of the cove, and they were there. This was midday, too.

It's funny, because depending on when you have been down, your perception could be completely different. I've only been done 3 times this spring, but all 3 times have been astounded at the quality of the fish. It seems like everything is 16+ inches. I haven't caught anything 5 lb+ yet this spring, but the overall quality of fish has been the best I have ever seen.

Mid lake, on the bluff side.

Really don't know- just bought some big football-head jigs a while back and put a 4-5" green pumpkin crawbug on the back of it. Thinking 3/4?

Thanks guys. The big trailer is probably as much a reason for the success as the big jig. I am going to put on the biggest trailer I can find in my collection.

Thanks again,
