What a scorcher day on the water! It’s hard to believe that we’re into September and the temps reached 90 degrees today on the lake. I fished with Andre & Jim for smallmouth bass and roasted with the high humidity in the process. The lack of wind didn’t make it easy either as we worked for each & every bite we had. Hats off to the weatherman for a perfect forecast of 10 to 15 knot winds from the south!!! A few of the areas had schooling bass and if you weren’t fast enough to take advantage of the followers, they disappeared right back to the depths they came from. Getting them back wasn’t all that easy either, as they remained down in their sanctuary and didn’t want anything to do with us above. Most of the fish caught today came on tube jigs and senko’s. There were a few bass that either followed or were lost on spinnerbaits and crankbaits, but with the flat water and sunshine, most refused to take aggressive baits. This was definitely a day of finesse fishing! There were a few bite offs from either pike or muskie on tubes and Andre lost a pretty big walleye of around 8 pounds at the boat when the fish just came unpinned. Plenty of areas were tried and most produced some sort of activity, but not what I had expected with the 10 to 15 knot winds and all!! Oh well, I guess they’re only as accurate as their equipment tells them to be! No pics today!
