WNF – 3-28-12

Yep it’s that time of year! Wednesday Nite Fishing is starting! I’m not sure it will be an every Wednesday occurence for a while but we’ll at least get a couple in till Turkey season comes to a close. In preparation of this season I have rewired all the electrical connections in our boat (eliminating a lot of extra splices in the process) and then cleaned the heck out of it with a vacuum and power sprayer. So the boat is definitely ready to rock an roll. For the first inaugural outing the venue will be Hickory Grove. I have not been out to the lake yet this year and am curious about the water temp. Our pond was already at 60 degrees and if Hickory is at that temp too then we should see the fish moving up to the shallows on the North side of the lake. If it’s colder than that I think its going to be a tough outing. My plan will be to drag some tubes along the bottom and maybe even throw the frog to test out the shallows now and then. Tomorrow will tell right?

  1. Well the first WNF of the year went pretty good! Five fish were landed. All fish were unfortunately between 10″ and 11″. Water clarity was pretty murky and water temp was right around 52-54. The fish we did find were hanging around chunk rock on the Northern shore. Texas rigs were the bait of choice and a slow retrieving, suspending jerk bait was the next best thing. After last night all three competitors are now on the board in the race to 1000″ of bass!
