WNF – 6-22-11

Plan for tonight will be different in the fact that both Brad and Bert will not be attending.  Bert is traveling to AZ to get Meggs settled in her new home and Brad is on vacation with his kids.  So it will just be me fishing tonight.  I still plan on going to Hickory Grove and starting out at the South Ramp.  We had a cold front come thru last night and so my plan will be to start by searching the honeysuckles and bushes that are over hang the water.  Seemed like last friday the fish were hanging close to the bank in those bushes and I’m hoping that the fish are still there but just hanging tighter to that cover.  Hopefully a frog or more likely a heavily weighted tube will be the ticket.  If the fish aren’t in the bushes then I’ll back out and work a shakey head craw or drop shot worm in deeper water.  So that’s my plan we’ll see what shakes out tonight.

  1. Well, the night went pretty good. I ended up with 7 fish total, 3 being legal keepers. I wasn’t on the lake 5 mins before I had landed two with one being 17.5″. After that I had to work to keep the boat in position with the wind. The fish, atleast the active ones, were tucked in those over hanging bushes. A frog was all I thru tonight and the casts had to be well placed and really tucked all the way to shore. The were no other boats on the lake and I only saw one guy fishing from shore but I never saw him catch anything. So all in all was a nice night minus the rain and wind.
