I picked George up at 7am for a day of pre-spawn fishing. I hoped it would be a big numbers day, but conditions change and we did a lot more fishing than catching. It was just before low tide, so I knew the morning would be tougher. 3 boats were already in the area and another guy was putting in. I closed my car door on my baitcasting rod, so that was fun. We fished near warm water for a couple hours and did not get a bite. Moved around some, but conditions were tough (several cold days prior, clearer water and light winds). The fish seemed to have lockjaw.
Finally, after lunch, I caught a fish on a tube. It was good to get the skunk out of the boat.
A while later, George caught one on a tube as well.
I was happy that George got one. It was with a rod he built and had not caught a fish with yet. The tide was coming in good and the water had a bit more color and there was an annoying, but tolerable NW wind. George switched to a swim bait on one of his SWM jigs and then hooked a nicer LM. My picture does not do the fish justice. Maybe George can add his pictures, which should be better.
I caught another smaller LM on a tube and then George cast to where he saw a fish chasing bait.
It was a nice snakehead!
That was it for the catching. I decided to move and we hit a flat that usually holds fish on high tide, but nada. We were off the water by about 3:40pm. It was much colder than I had hoped and the fish were not on fire, but we caught a few.
My pix of the greenie looks about the same
Froze our butts off at first, then the sun came out, skies cleared and the fish started biting
Broke the cherry on a new rod too
Had a great time DrX
