Fished it Sunday afternoon from 3pm till 8pm.
Word at the bait store was basser's trolling the dam were picking up walleye instead.
This was before our recent cold front and the resulting 3 inches of rain.
She tell's me the average walleye runs 20 inches. This intrigues me.
I launched at the southern end of the lake and that was a mistake.
We get out on the main lake and the wind is howling and the water is choppy. Not a good combination when fishing out of the Coleman Crawdad!
We started out live baiting for crappie and perch in a cove to no avail.
We decide to try and make a run to the north end of the lake to check some bluegill beds but my daughter was getting drenched from spray coming over the bow.
So we took a break in the truck to warm up, grab a bite to eat,and rethink the situation.
It was brutal out there today!
By this time it was pushing 6pm. We abandon the live bait rigs and start tossing shallow divers.
We worked some points and banks that had been recieving sunshine all day.
This paid off and we started picking up some small bass.
Hey at least we didn't get skunked.
