    Interesting day! I haven't been to the V in 3 weeks, it changed..I had to work for fish! I got to the lake at 5:45, 3 trailers in the lot..like that! Heavy overcast to start the day, thinkin perfect topwater conditions, so I made a run around the lake looking for breakers...nada! So I started throwing my trusty fluke..not so trusty today! Picked up one and one came unbuttoned..no more on the fluke! I switched to a senko, got 2 fish and then broke off a nice one in a tree! I felt the fish were deeper so I switched to my dropshot, picked up 3 fish in 25' of water, broke off a couple more in the trees. It seems like with the water at this level, the quaggas are thicker in the deeper trees now. As the fog started to burn off around 10:00, I noticed a few busters starting to go off in the middle of the lake, over deep water! I decided to chase them and threw tandem tiny flukes at them. I picked up 5 fish, throwing right on top of the boils! If you were off a couple feet..nada! If you were 2 seconds late..nada..the fish were up and down in a split second! The breakers lasted about 20 minutes..then the party was over! I went back to the dropshot and picked up a couple more fish and busted off a couple more, tough getting them out of the trees. For you old timers that remember the islands to the east of the big island, they are about to reappear. They've been underwater since the new dam was built, but with the water level dropping, the one island is only 6' under the surface! The good news though, water is coming in from the aquaduct, right before the lake was going to return to the old dam levels! 20210823_095907.jpg 20210823_095348.jpg 20210823_082947.jpg Screenshot_20210823-200624_Photos.jpg

    Way to stay with it and figure out where they were. Hopefully with the aqueduct flowing, the water level will go up a bit. Thanks for the report and pics! Hope to see you out there soon.

    Glad to see you out on the water again catching fish at San V. Lots can change in a few weeks
    sometimes at a lake. You still caught some bass and no doubt had some fun.
    I can visualize your reactions when the ones broke you off in the trees. Thank goodness you
    were not wearing your special hat that you beat on the water after your line breaks...just kidding!
    Thanks for the report and tight lines always. :)

    ps A little something I came up with after a couple of sips of coffee just now

    mcfish's line is drawn
    The worm he does cast
    The slow bite now
    Will later be fast
    As mcfish fishes San V
    Trying to catch bass
    The lake is rapidly fadin'
    And the first boat out

    For the times at San V are a Changing.

    That is the very same Redhead hat that I have on in my avatar pic. Well, not the exact one!

    Vinny, I'm thinking you're one of those retired guys that might need to get a job again!!! Way to much idle time on your hands. Lol

    You are supposed to have lots of free time when you retire. I am living the dream!

    I've never been as busy as I am now, since I retired! True, half the time I'm fishing or playing! My yard and koi are definitely happy I'm retired!
