Winds were super low today, so I went out to the lake to fish open water. I caught two small bass near the brush pile. One on a swim bait and one on a spinner bait. Didn’t find anything else there.
I paddled all the way to the bridge, and realized I didn’t know how to fish bridge pilings, so I just looked around using my fish finder. Didn’t fish too much more, just enjoyed paddling around the whole lake.
The high winds have kept me out of the yak for the last few weeks. The winds were high today, but coming out of the North for a change. That meant the cove I launch from would be protected on the trip back. The water was dirty again after the rain the other day. I didn’t expect to catch much.
My black woolly bugger was still on my fly rod from the last trip, so I threw it a few times. Caught a small catfish on the second cast. I didn’t catch anything else on the fly rod using the popper. The spinner bait, road runner, and texas rigged worm all drew a blank.
I put on a white smim bait and hooked a nice bass in open water. I got it all the way to the boat, reached for my net, and it threw the bait and swam away. Something splashed near a tree to the right of me, so I threw that swimbait over there and something hit it just as it hit the water. Turns out it was another catfish just a little bigger than the previous one.
Water temp was around 75 degrees in the creek. I decided to leave around 3pm, since the water was dirty.
