Notes

I started the day with Allen in the kayak working the west side of the lake as the sun came up with no bites at all. Allen was using a rubber Creature with a glass bead and a brass bullet weight ¼ oz. and for me , well I started with a ¼ oz. black and blue spider Jig with a Purple and blue Yum mini chunk craw. We fished up to the big tree in the water on the point across from the cave. Not 1 bite. We then went to the east side and started at the dam and worked our way north (this is the deeper side of the lake) No bites! We then went back to the west side because now the sun was up over the trees and beating down on the west bank, I new that the bass would be there before anywhere. We fished the same stretch as we did when we got there and still no bites. By the time we reached the Big Tree again it was going on 11:00am and Allen had to leave to do something. Right after Allen got out of the boat I caught my first fish on the spider Jig in the skinny tree right next to the Big Tree. I then went across the lake to the 2nd cove (The Big Cove) and fished from the cave around to the 1st cove (Little Cove). Nothing! I called Rick and told him to come on up and he did. I picked him up about 30 minutes later at the pavilion. We went back over to the South West side of the lake for the third time today but this time was different! The water had enough time to warm up for the fish to start feeding and the sun was high in the air. Just about every fish I caught was deep in brush or bushes under the water in less then 3 foot. (The fish would not come out to get it they wanted it in the middle of the thicket). Rick on the other hand was in the front of the boat, he had first cast to all the good spots but couldn’t seem to hook a fish I told him he brought the wrong rod. He needed a stiff rod to set the hook through that brush guard of his Brown spider jig. I told him to switch up to a Teaser tube (Green with purple flake) and he lost a couple more but then finally boated 1. Later in the day as the sun was going down we hit the north side and north east side of the lake. I thought that it may have warmed up some from the bright sun all day but the Jig wasn’t working any more I think due to the lack of light at this time of day. ( It was like 5:00pm) I tied on a Gold spinner bait with a gold willow leaf blade and a smaller gold Colorado blade ¼ oz. and caught 2 before I left at 6:00pm. I caught 8 bass and lost 3 . Ricky didn’t do so well he only caught 1 and lost 5 or 6. I had a great time . good start to the spring.
