    Let's start the day with..... First, I had a fish blow up 3 times on a Gunfish and yet not get hooked. Then had a bass roll and miss my fluke and later on another bass swirled around it and missed it. Finally I caught a bass on a spoon..... a skunk-breaker dink. Heck what was that tiny bass doing in the middle of the lake? I kept moving to spots where bass jumped and as a lot of my recent reports sound the same..... I finally ended up worm fishing. Missed a couple bites in the grass but used drop shot rigs and Texas rigs to land only 4 more dinks to add to my spoon dink. It was crazy as all my bass were tiny. I had hoped to land something fatter(guess I have been pretty lucky on a lot of my recent trips)...but that did not happen this morning.
    The only interesting thing is all the bass were caught on different baits: a spoon, margarita mutilator, black robo worm, Folkestad purple robo worm and a small pumpkin creature bait. Thank goodness there is always next week...ha ha

    Just for laughs.........my 2 biggest bass

    Nice job on the video and on the lake. Looks like you and Tim had lots of fun and did not even pre-fish.
    Regarding Murray..... I paid mcfish to file the right paperwork so I can fish Murray the rest of the year. Only catch is I can’t catch a bass over 7lbs(only caught 4 in the 6lb- 6.75 range so I am sticking to the agreement). After today’s action I’m pretty much in the clear... ha ha. :)

    You could find bass if the water was boiling!

    Hey VinnyBass five dinks beats the skunk, at least. Catching is way more fun than fishing. Thanks for the report. Hoping there will be bigger ones eating this Saturday when I hit Murray with my out-of-town buddy. Thanks for the report. Now blow those fish up in your favorite editing software, bet they could look like 3-4 pounders with a little Photoshopping. :emoji_wink:

    Ha ha...The pic(comment #8) I was messing with mcfish was just to show the color of the bass and not the size. First, if you look at the mouth of the bass(my fingers are as big as his head) and look at the 6"worm....the bass will always be a dink at any size of a photo. Once a dink, always a dink. :)

    It was cool in the morning and got pretty warm.
    It would have been nicer if the fishing was cold in the morning and then got hot when the sun came out....ha ha
