I hate that drive. However I do like the lake. fished from 6:30-6:00. I put so much water in front of me all day...For the first 3 hours easy I had 3 bites and 1 landed. They were not feeding along the shoreline. I ignored the breaking fish at first. And some were decent. I could not tell if they were carp or bass at times so I said forget them. Kept on keeping on. Another hour or so goes by. After only 1 fish I saw a decent bass chasing shad off a point in about 50ft of water So on a whim I went out to see whats up. It broke again and I tossed and it smashed my lure. Nice 15” bass. Now..... hind sight sets in and I’m pissed. I should have abandoned my shore line top water and frogs hours ago. Over the next hour or two I ended up landing 6 and losing 3. All in the 15” range. Larger schoolies than normal. And they were chunky. Spitt’n up shad left and right. Now the wind is blowing so I go back to the shore. Still, zero fish along shore. Wind dies a bit. I see the breakers go again. Make another toss and get smashed. This is the last fish I land for the day. Stayed and fished until 6:00pm. I did late in the afternoon have 3 serious explosions on my top water bait along shore. All three came unbuttoned. Time for new hooks. Anyway... a seriously hard fought 8 bass for the day. All but 2 fish landed on a large walking bait. 3/4oz bait. The other 2 clone fry.
