Photos from today:
Freshwater Drum.During the drift I hooked a walleye that was smaller than the ones I had caught last trip, but it got away at the boat. I also hooked a mammoth Striper that made several strong runs despite the fact I got him to the boat a couple times, and when I decided to put the brakes on one of them, he wasn't having any of that and he kept right on going and took my crank bait with him. On the very next cast I caught another nice Drum.
Towards the end of the day I caught two real nice Stripers on two consecutive casts. The first one was right around 10 lbs give or take and second one was a few pounds lighter.
Hybrid Striped Bass.
I quickly caught another Drum and then looked at my watch and realized I had better get going. I got a late start and only fished for 3 hours, but as I headed towards the ramps I was really wishing I had more time to spend out there. The water temperature was 68 and the water level seemed way up due to the reported six inches of rain that area received overnight and during the day.
When I got back to the ramps, the same red-winged blackbird was still hanging around. He landed on the seat in my boat one more time as I was getting the cover out of my vehicle. I told him that the next time I fish there he was welcome to go out on the water with me.
Maybe Next Time.
