After a great BBQ lunch at Billiken's, Bill, Mike and I hit the water around 1pm to see if we could match/beat our last trip out with Chris McCotter.
Splashed the boat, all systems go but.....no juice to the Fish Finder. Bill says, we will have to find fish the old fashioned way....sure we will!
Anyway, we headed up to where we believed they were and started throwing top water, jigs, cranks etc.
There was a chance of more rain and after a bit, Mike said he thought he heard thunder. Yeah right! Well, a couple of minutes later, Bill and I say lightning and we scurried back to the hotel dock.
Then, the winds really kicked up and it stared to rain and hail!
After an hour or so, we went back out and we found some breaking fish...for all of 8 seconds! Enough to make a cast and I hooked up immediately and then "bing", the line popped at the leader knot. Operator error.....and the fish actually took some line. Aargh!
That was the only bite of the afternoon so back to the room and a nice Italian dinner at Vito's.
With anticipation, we got going in the AM as we looked for breaking fish.
No FF meant, we can't see if we are on a school or not. Very frustrating!
We looked and looked and looked and finally found a few breakers in a cove. They were up for 3 seconds this time....double frustrating!
We saw quite a few boats and no catches (that we saw) so we kept looking and actually trolled a couple of lines as we puttered back to the ramp.
No nothing but a BIG SKUNK!!
Lake Anna strikes again. But all is not lost as we hit Billiken's on the way back and forgot all about our troubles.
That's a tough one! At least you ate well.
Beats being at work
That's a tough one!
Just met Jay from D & S Marine (Waldorf) in Alexandria and he discovered that there is a short in the system so where so he took my boat to his shop. You can't beat that kind of service!!
At least you ate well.
It's part of the program......
Next time you'll have to eat at the Mexican restaurant in Louisa or Tavern on the rail near me (dike 3). Lake anna has been a tough place to fish for many years. I've yet to hear of many success stories. Whenever I'm out over the summer I see huge pods of bait fish all over and no breaking fish. I hear there are fish including walleye (by the locals of course), but I have yet to see one.
