Sept. 27 Big M area

Air temp was 45 degrees at the ramp this morning and I was somewhat scantily clad so it was a cold start.  Fishing wasn't great, but this weather is outstanding.  Haven't been over to TR in a while, lake has dropped 3-4 feet since I was last here.  I like it when it gets down to 910.

Monarchs are coming through, saw a half dozen crossing the lake and I wasn't looking too hard for them.  To me that is a sign of fall when I see them on their way south.

As for the fishing, I started in a cove and worked a top water down both banks and around the trees for the first hour, caught one 12" largemouth.  Then fished some bluffs for a while with a jig and caught another 12 incher.

Decided to do some Babler style fishing, 150 yards off the bank where the water is 20 feet deep.  Found some fish, caught some on top, a couple on a 3.3 Keitech and one on a drop shot.  12-14 inch spots, with 2 keepers.  About 10 AM they stopped and I was at the dock at 1130.

Got a call from a buddy that had a good day, 30 fish, 10 were keepers - on jigs.  Can't say where, but there's are some fish to be caught if you are in the right place.

My biggest fish was this 16' meanie.  He absolutely blew up on the top water, fought like a maniac, and then bounced around in the net getting my lure all tangled up in my net - had to cut one of the hooks out of the net.

WT 75-77
