The opportunist

The Ohio River was beautiful Sunday. Very cold ambient temp 27 degrees – water was 59 degrees. Clarity was about 80% with a dingy tint…but somewhat clear.

Went out for Sauger but started the cold morning off with a nice Hybrid Striper on light action gear about 7-9 lbs. In the process I stumbled onto a weed-bed that appeared to hold a few Largemouth Bass. As I fished back and forth the 20 yard stretch I realized that Bass were congregated in the sparse weed-beds. So, I began fishing for Bass and it was a great decision. Bass were all over this shallow weed-bed and actively feeding! Caught perhaps 10 in a matter of just a few minutes! Some were real nice!

The fog began to dissipate as the Sun came through. These shallow Bass seemed to “turn off” and the bite was over. Began fishing for Sauger again without success. Caught a nice Shovelhead and lost a second fish that I didn’t see. Released all the Bass and will go back around Thanksgiving!

I flexed yesterday and took the opportunity to catch what was biting! Never did find what I was looking for (Sauger) but stumbled onto everything else. Had a great time enjoying life fishing on the Ohio River in November. Beautiful day! God bless!
