Got to the lake at 9am. It was already hot. I was sweating unloading the yak. Took the small fly rod and caught a few bluegills. I also caught two cats on the secret 7.
Not much fishing done. I caught a big crappie jigging stumps. Then the weather changed on me. Clouds moved in quickly, and rain poured down. I got soaked and had to tie the yak to the trailer and move around to the parking area until the rain stopped.
I was prepared to leave at 11am, but after checking the radar and seeing that it was clear I decided to stay another hour. Fifteen minutes later the clouds and rain moved in. I don’t know where it came from. If I would have started to leave five minutes earlier, I could have made it to the car without getting wet.
Tossed the cast net around and caught an eight to ten inch shad. Used it for cut bait.
Jigged a few stumps and logs and did not find any crappie. I pulled into a cove and threw a weightless senko close to the shore. Got a small bass to bite. The senko was gone, so I put on another one. Jigged a small stump on my way out of the cove and got another bass to bite. This was in around four feet of water.
I missed a large bass while jigging a tree in 35 feet of water. I couldn’t figure out how to get the fish to bite at that depth. I’ll try again later.
Got a few small catfish on the secret7, and three keepers once I changed locations. The wind picked up around 5pm and blew me off the lake. The waves were just too high.
