    Another float tube session at the Big B on Wednesday was another hot day. On my way down to the lake shortly
    after 5:40 am the temp was 46*. I decided to launch at Piggy's again. Tried to get a topwater bite in the cove but had no luck. Kicked across the lake to the rocks and it was game on. That area seemed to hold the larger fish, fishing at between 8 and 20 feet. Managed a 3.8 lb and 10 others that were between 2 and 3 pounds, all very healthy fish. Come noonish I decided to kick back to Piggy's to take a break for lunch. Instead of staying there i relocated to the dock to fish the afternoon at the dam. Smart move as I added another 11 healthy fish to my total. Of the 22 lmb I caught, 4 were around a pound and no dinks. I would say 2 plus pounds was the average, fun. Same baits of choice as last time, lipless crankbait and 3" MC swimbait on a darter head(1/8 oz). I also tired a 5" Neko Fat Grn Pumpkin/Blk Flk worm fly lined for 3 nice keepers. 3 nice Gillies also added to my total. Water warmed up a bit from last week to 73* to 77*. Was off the water by 5pm to take my first sip of a cold one...........STUNNING DAY. I think the weather is warming up a bit and so is the fishing.

    PS Laurie asked me to publish that she found a pair of float tube fins at Piggy's last Saturday(7/13). If you are the owner contact her to claim

    Nice - I saw you out there when I was cruising by in the boat a few times going in and out of hauser/pine. Was a pretty good day.

    Thanks for being honest with the fish size. Last weekend I heard a guy tell Juuls that he caught 40 fish that averaged 4lbs. I just shook my head.

    I have an update on those lost float tube fins. After talking to Laurie again she said what she found at Piggy's was actually some parts from a kyak. If you lost these parts please contact her.

    Also, at least amongst my fishing partners, we all have digital scales to weigh the fish we talk about........no questions asked when you have proof.

    I have a friend who constantly catches t0 pound Bass. He tells us about it and we go catch 3 pound Bass. He says a smaller group of fish must of moved in. His nickname is “10 pounder”. The guy catches s lot of fish, just something wrong with his eyes....
