    My buddy Tim, aka RippinLip619 invited me to fill his backseat at El Cap today and basically all I did was fill his back seat... ha ha. The lake parking lot was already packed when we arrived as there was a tournament today. Lots of pressure on the lake yesterday and especially today with the tournament and with a big drop in the temperature, it was going to make it an interesting day. Every spot that looked good was pretty much taken. I thought of some spots that paid off years ago (being the back seat driver) and we were able to hit a few of them. As we arrived at each one RippinLip619 worked his magic and pulled in bass. As we took off to another spot that I remembered...he pulled bass out of there too. That was the pretty much the pattern for today. There was one spot where there was a good bite going on and we each pulled in a few and lost a few. Bottomline RippinLip619 was on a roll as he switched baits and mixed it up with lure selection to catch bass. I had a tougher day today and as we both missed several bites and fish which was not much fun, I was only able to put 4 in the boat while Tim (aka RippinLip619) pulled in an easy dozen. While none of the fish were real big, it was still a pretty fun time. Tim knows his stuff and this old guy in the back seat had a great time not only sharing fish stories with him but watching this talented young bass fisherman in action.
    Thanks again Tim for taking me out on the lake with you. :)

    Thanks for the kind words Vinny I had a blast out there with you today and even though we didnt catch an bigguns it was still great getting to hang out and catch up! If you guys think Vinny knows Murray well you should see him at El Cap, the guys knows where every point, drop, flat, rock and grain of sand is in the entire lake! I learned over a years worth of contour in a single day from him yesterday, it was really impressive how much experience he has on the lake and how well he knows it. All of the spots we caught fish were the ones where he put us on em.

    Thanks Tim for the props, but as they say you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink and the same thing kind of applies with fishing.... as I can put you on a spot, but no guarantee you will catch bass....but you did! :)

    Wow...that's great you were able to get on some fish with all the tourney guys out there crowding up the lake! You can lead an angler to a spot, but can't make him catch?? :emoji_slight_smile: Thanks for the report and pics. Always fun to meet up and fish with a fellow SDFISH pal.

    Hey there....I told Tim when you and him to go to hit some spots that we never make it to and you guys will hopefully find lots of bass. It was fun and thanks for probably giving up your spot with Tim so I could fish with him. Take care and tight lines. :)
