Crankin’ Em Up
June 18, 2005
I fished with Nathan, his son Devin & his friend Jacob today on Lake of Two Mountains for smallmouth bass. The day started off with high winds from the N/NW at 15 to 25 knots and two to three footers greeting us in the face. I had to shoot across the bay to an island where I was able to find some shelter from this crap. Within the first couple of minutes, Jacob caught the first bass. After about an hour, he had the only 5. We changed locations a few times and everyone caught fish. Devin managed to get the largest fish, once again as he landed a 3.5-pound post spawner. The water was really cold for this time of year at 64 degrees and the air didn’t seem any warmer. Crankbaits were the only lures able to catch fish as the water looked like coffee with three creams. To say the visibility was bad would have been an understatement. Within the first two inches of the surface, a bright lure disappeared! Between the cold water and lack of visibility, we were fortunate to catch the 15 or so bass that we did. Overall, a good day!
