The challenge is still on! Weather is threatening an early start but storm chances, at this point in time, are only as high as 40%. My goal is to be up and on the water between 7am and 8am. Since I have never fished this lake before I’m not exactly sure how we’ll start. I am thinking as the sun comes out and the temps start tp rise that fishing along the dam with craws and drop shots will be the ticket… maybe even around the island as it transitions to deeper water fairly quickly. I think my opening plan will be fish toward the back of the lake. It seems the further you get away from the ramp the shallower it gets. Maybe with such a big Shallow end there will be some good frog fishing in the morning or even in the heat of mid day. I have been pumped all week and am very excited to get going tomorrow. I pulled the most recent IADNR electrofishing survey from 5/26 and the results excite me. In their survey the shocked 17 bass from 14″-16″, 7 bass from 16″-18″, 3 bass from 18″-20″, and 4 bass 20″-24″! The fact that they shocked that many bass shows me that this could be a good fishery since they only shock a small sampling of a lake when they do shock it. Hopefully those fish are still there and are hungry for my lures tomorrow. I have rambled enough, so we’ll see what tomorrow brings. I am hoping for at least 1 bass of 4-5lbs and that shows my optimism right there.
