Occoquan Reservoir 10/9/19

I got on the water a little later than I wanted.  Decided to sleep another hour.  Got on the water about 7:45am.  The weather was cool and the water was low.  I ran downriver and worked a creek arm.  It took a while to get my first bite.  Hooked one about 14 inches or so on a Wiggle Wart.  It got off before I got it in the boat.  I ran toward the dam and hooked a chunky dink on a crank.  Skunk out of the boat.  The bite slowed down and I decided to cross to the other side and work a creek arm near the dam.  I tossed a wacky senko near some shoreline wood and hooked a nice 18.5"er that was over 3 pounds.

I hooked one more small one and decided to let the wind move me along the shore and fish similar structure.  It took a while, but I hooked another fish on the senko the same length that was maybe a tad lighter.

I hooked a smaller fish after lunch and then pitched the senko into a blowdown near shore and got a 15+"er.

It was sunnier than it was supposed to be, but the temperature was nice.  I was happy with my catch and got off the water about 3:15pm.  Nice early Fall day.

Nice bunch of fish. I have it on good authority that a flutter spoon worked well in deeper water during the summer. Not sure if those fish would still be deep.


Time to go fishin' again!

That's a good technique.  I bought one, but never really put the time in to learn it.  It was cold front conditions and the bite was tough.
