A tale of two days. Thursday, fished 9 hours, from Old Hwy 86 to almost point 5. Weather was cloudy AM, cleared around noon, little to no wind. Caught 2 keepers and 2 shorts in 9 hours. Best keeper was a 19" smallie that just lunched on a crankbait. Why it was the only one willing I don't think I'll ever understand. I fished mainly main-lake stuff that day covering many locations that were very good to me last year at this time. 

Friday, fished from KC to Cow area with new-found friend, Dave, from SD. We were pre-fishing for the BBC midwest rally on Sat. Weather was cold, heavy overcast with occasional rain, and a strong norfer front that blew through mid-afternoon. The fish were on fire. The difference in their attitude from Thursday was simply amazing. Dave and I said the heck with the tournament and just pounded as many as we could. It was easy fishing, the kind of day that mid-winter dreams are made of. The majority came on cranks including the gal shown below. She went 23" and 6.56 lbs. Caught her almost at the back of a pocket with water temp showing 52. I'm very happy that we caught 'em on Friday as we struggled hard yesterday with the post-front conditions. We weighed 4 for 13.9 lbs, winning sack was 17.7.

Thanks Dave for a couple of very enjoyable fishing days. Good luck returning to snow country.

Good to meet you and Dave at the rally. All our fish Saturday came out of Cow Creek. Ended up with  16.55 in fifth place I guess. Had a couple of fours in the bag but nothing that size. Congratulations.

Congrats on the 4th. Great finish in some challenging conditions. Met a bunch of great people at the rally, got introduced with their real names and I'll be scratching my head until the next rally trying to pair that with forum names. Hard enough for me to remember one name let alone two. :lol:
