Big M area 4/4

Recommended Posts

Nice day to fish, but had trouble finding any quality.  Tossed cranks around to start, fished an area that had worked for me last week, but yesterday could not get a bite early on the cranks.  Went to a jig and struck out on it also.  Started fishing the Ned and a Carolina rigged lizard and picked up random, but small fish on those baits.  Mostly 12-14" largemouth males that were on the bank. 

Wind picked up a bit early in the afternoon, so I decided to crank a chunk rock bank with a Wart, caught my only keeper sized bass on the Wart and a couple more small males.

I'm pretty sure those males are on the bank ready to build beds, I did a little checking and saw what appeared to be a few beds in shallow water.  Water is so murky it is hard to be sure, but I believe they are starting to build beds.  Water temps were 58 main channel and 60 back in one cove I was in, and those are the temps that get those males busy.

When I put the boat on the trailer, I saw something sitting in the grass a few feet from the edge of the ramp, looked like a crank bait, I thought no way, but it was a 6 XD.  How it ended up where it was is a mystery to me, but there it was.

Caught 22 bass, all short, except one.

I got to fish yesterday morning also, I was able to pick some up on a shakey head, no keepers, they would pick it up and come toward the boat & could hardly tell, sneaky suckers i tell ya. On a good note went to Battery outfitters in Golden Monday morning, took the battery in question with me, it was 2 years out of warranty and he told me it should last much longer than that and replaced it at no cost. So a big thanks to them, I'm thinking his name was Tony but not sure.

Next time my batteries need replacing I need to go there.

Quill, thanks for the details. I saw a big bass sitting on a bed in about 4' of water in the back of a cut behind a dock on Tuesday. WT was 58.6 and I just watched for a while and didn't throw to the fish. I agree they are getting ready. My next time out will include a couple of TW lures on the deck.
