It looks like maybe the bass were saving some of the bites I couldn’t get this summer. At least, that’s the way it felt today out on Lake Elsinore. Unfortunately, I converted on some, but missed a chance at a very respectable sack.
Starting about 9:30 (hey, I had to move furniture out of the way to get the rig out of the garage), I fished until about 2:00 with the fish in the picture, plus an 18-plus inch wiper.
They came along the west shore on the half-ounce Booyah on 17- and 20-pound line as I looked to cut down on the break-offs. In clouds of visible 1 1/2-inch shad, the bigger blades apparently gave them something different to look at.
Seeing fish this size sure gave me something different to look at! (more…)
