    3rd trip this year, best one by far! Sunday 9-23-18

    First thing is we saw a mountain lion cub by the oak tree grove on the way in at 4:45 am. Stopped and it sat there looking at us for a few seconds the playfully ran off, told my son momma was probably around close. Anyways to the fishing, motored out in complete darkness, hit some rock pile on the way to Hauser arm, nothing bit in the dark. Found our first bass about 6 ish, on an Ika. Son threw the frog 70% of the time on his new reel, determined to catch one. He got several blow ups and lost a nice one in the slime. After fishing Hauser till about 9:30 we moved to pine, found a cove that looked froggy and he went to work for nada. I stroked them on the Ika, 3 nice ones back to back to back casts. These fish would take it and swim, no nibbles I had to watch my line move. Landed about 40 bass between us, biggest 3lbs, +/- guessing. We caught fish on Ika's, Senko's, blue/chrome rattle trap, redeyed shad and the frog! Son was stoked to catch one on the frog. **We also noticed they were spitting up some nice sized bait fish.

    Fished till closing, ended the day by catching half dozen oversized blue gill on the dock.

    Saw some busters and shad jumping, we didn't invest to much time in chasing them as they were few and far between. Did see some guys dedicated to trolling the main parts of the lake and they told me they killed it that way.

    Windy all day after about 9:30 am, never quit blowing.

    Good luck to everyone going the last 3 days! They are there and willing to play.

    Report of the year right there gents! Way to get them. 40 bass in the 2-3lbs range is what Barrett is all about! It’s a shame I won’t be going the rest of the season so I’ll just have to live through others reports!

    Was it just me or did this season fly by? Already looking forward to next year and long days with good friends. And, if lucky a good BBQ with Max and the crew.
