4-13....Fished Saturday with Bob Standiford. Bobby and I have been talking about getting on the boat together for years and Saturday we decided to make it happen for the first time. I had one of the best days out there with him, not just from a fishing angle but also for just being out on the water with a great friend.
We only fished from 5 hours, 9-2. Water temp was 55-56. We pulled up to our 1st spot and within casts Bobby nails a beautiful 3.5lb sm. A couple casts later I hit a 4.5lb sm. (hmmm, 2 smallies in the 3-4lbs range...any idea what part of the lake we were fishing? lol) So, what a great start to the day. I think I remember saying to him, "Dawg, if we dont catch another fish all day I'm going home happy!" Of course that was not going to happen. By the end of the day we had caught about 15 fish with the best 8 going somewhere in the high teen's.
We caught up with Walt Marchant and chatted a bit with him. He said he was struggling but I was happy to see a picture text come thru my phone while I was driving home from Walt with a pic of a beautiful smallie. Nice catch, Walt!
Thanks, Bob, for a great day! Please be sure I'm at the top of the list for that Prettyboy trip soon!
4-14....Fished a Rebel Tourney and some really nice fish were caught. One of our guys got one in the 6lbs range up at the top of the lake for Lunker. Water temp 56. Wind was howling out of the N-NW. I ended up with 14.12lbs for my best 5, with a 4.13sm for a kicker. I lost a 3-4lbs sm within the first 5 minutes of the morning. Some smaller fish were shallow but the FAT girls havent made the commitment to the shallows just yet but I feel with this stable weather coming this week and the full moon on the 25th some could be coming up to do their thing.
