Mother Nature says its now! Water temp 58-60 degrees. Bass, Hybrid Striper, White Bass, Drum. Chad and I had a blast Sunday. No Sauger…yet, but its getting close. First of November!
If you ever wondered what those fish were that porpoise and flip all around the lake in the Summer…they are Buffalo Carp. Chad caught this one last night on a 9′ pole – 4lb. test line. 30 minutes to land.
As Chad and Dad fished yesterday Chad found an old spinner bait hanging in a tree. I took the boat in and Chad removed it from the entangled spider-wire. He then tied it onto his pole and used it to catch two real nice bass. Was Dad surprised? Yes. It was an unusual looking spinner bait (frog colored)…but it worked well with much to be learned. Should work well in the future. Thought this old fish story was worth telling.
