Finally got out for a day of bass fishing. Wow they were ready for it and so was I. I had over a hundred bass, many over 3 pounds. The water temp was 66 degrees and weeds have grown nicely. It was cloudy and raining on and off all day, finishing with lots of rain, thunder and lightning, so with the mosguitos, I called it a day.
The bass were biting most anything, but it was watching for the signals they gave you that got you the most fish. Most of the day the water was still and no fish action happening, I slowed down and put a jig and plastic right on em. They took it very good, so they are eating. When some were high in the water and pushing the water around, I went to a top water and they crushed it. It was awesome.
I saw many small pike putting their noses out of the water, many had marks on their backs, yeah I saw them by the marks. And the panfish were feeding, when the pike weren't after them. Lots of bluegills, crappies and pike active. But the bass took center stage and they made all the rain worth it. Besides the rain was warm and felt nice.
I hope everyone is getting out fishing, it's time.
