late report Had a club tournament at El Cap. Hadn't been there in awhile...... No problem Got there a little late....... No problem Driving in I noticed there was no one in the dam arm....what ? Went to a favorite rock in the dam area. Pulled out a Carolina rigged creature out of the rod locker. Fired out and counted it down....about 35ft. Hits bottom. Tightened it up and.....Splash - a fish explodes on bait behind the boat. Then another.....then another.... Well crap.... Reeled in the Carolina rig ( quickly ) and after rummaging around in the rod locker Found what I was looking for. Darter head swim bait. Another fish boiled close...fired out...started retrieve and boom... !! I'm on..!! Nice keeper... Destroyed my swimmer. Dug around and found the bag. Threaded a new one on with shaking hands as they were boiling pretty good still. Fired it out. It hits the water. And boom....I'm on....another keeper. So this keeps up for a good 20 minutes. Caught 3 keepers and 4 shorts. Went thru 5 swimbaits though. That usually doesn't happen. I can't seem to keep the fish from tearing them up today. I know- Throw a hard bait. Put on a topwater... It rhymes with Fun Fish.... Started Destroying them. Bigger 3plus pounders were eating the top water. By 9 am I had drifted about a 1/4 mile and caught 19 fish...some as small as 6 inches...but a few in the 3 plus range also. I had about 13 to 14 pounds in the livewell. It slowed way down but I kept catching one here and there but just culling by an ounce at a time. At noon I went down into the long arm and.....what..?....there's no one on my favorite rock..!? Dropped down the troller and pulled out the Carolina again. I had only made that initial cast with it in the morning. Lobbed out a short cast. Its windy now. It's difficult to feel but....it started pulling down my rod tip. I release pressure but it keeps pulling. So I slam the rod up high and....I'm on...!!!!! First cast.....lipped a fat four pounder minutes later... Hells yeah...!!!! Culled out a 2 pounder for a 4...excellent.... Fished there for another 1 1/2 hours and never got another bite....whaaattt..??? Anywho...excellent Day.... Had 16 lbs and some change... I won... 2nd place had 14 and change.. Had to have that Carolina rig fish or I don't win....hhaaa..as a dear old long gone friend of mine used to say.."better lucky than good."
