My goal today was to check as many of my spots as possible….both of the shallow variety and deep. The deep bite still is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay off. I hit some of my prime time stuff with absolutely ZERO bites. I deep cranked and trigged flukes, senkos, and 10 in plum power worms. The good news is that the shallow bite is still pumping out fish and a lot of them. I only put one fish on the scales today and was mainly an eyeball check….I guessed the fish below to be around six and half pounds. The official weight was 6.52…..my eyeballs are pretty well calibrated I would say..lol.
I caught 2 others that were in that 6 lb class, but most of the fish were of the 5 lbs and under class like the one pictured below.
The shallow fish were all caught on spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, and senkos……no surprises. I am booked the next 5 days with repeat clients…..can’t wait and I sure hope all this gas I burned today on scouting pays off for them.
Final stats on the day:
Gallons of Gas: 37
Total fish: 21
Best 5: about 27 lbs
