I got out early and used my canoe with outriggers. It was a perfect morning and the water was surprisingly high considering the lack of rain recently. I thought I would be able to get something on topwater with the cloudiness, but nothing. I switched to a Subwart and nothing. I finally used a zoom speed craw on a Slider jig and got a decent LM maybe 14" or so. I alternated between crankbaits, chatterbaits and craws. I lost a better LM about 3lbs at the boat on a texas rigged craw. The morning stayed cloudy and I really thought I would do better.
I brought 2 heavy jigs to fish deep, but never ended up using them. There was a little breeze and I did not have electronics, so deep structure fishing was not in the cards. I ended up catching one small white perch on a little crankbait trolling back toward the dam. I caught a couple more small LM down at the dam. I decided to slow troll a dark chatterbait deep on the way back after lunch. I hooked a better fish, but never got a good hookset and the fish surfaced and threw the hook.
Overall, I really enjoyed being back out on the lake and caught a few. I like that there is parking and someone controlling access.
Sounds like some decent actio....glad you got out.
You got to be outside and get some pullage, very nice.
Did better than me this weekend. Saturday my GF and I met my sister and little nephew out there in the morning. The GF and I got rained on some while waiting. But I was catching perch. I paddled around with my nephew in my kayak and never caught another fish.
I went back early this morning. The perch were breaking the surface all over but they just weren't biting what I always get them on. I only caught two. It's getting to the point where I liked it better when the water clarity was a lot less. Used to be about 2ft, now it's more like 6ft.
Bunch of people out there but I didn't see them catching anything.
I did much better on the Potomac yesterday. Launched at Kephart, motored most of the way to the mouth of the creek where I caught a small crappie. My first time catching a crappie in the river. Got a typical smallie too before motoring up the river. I went up to Harrison Island before turning around. Caught a bunch of average smallies all over and some feisty sunfish. Caught one final smallie at the mouth of Goose Creek before I headed back up the creek.
