Hit the lake as the sun was coming up to look for the fabled largemouth bass... Fished around the island with jig and pig and slow rolling a spinner. no joy. Went around the bank on the highway 20 side tossing everything I could think of, Popper, spinner, jig and pig, texas rig craw, I even tried rattle traps. Nothing was going to find bass so I spotted some trout popping the top of the water.
I tossed a rooster tail into them and landed about six 8 to 11 inch trout. Not what I was looking for but it turned out a ok day. I left about 1pm due to weather and chill...
Its a great lake and I have spoken to to a very reliable source who says there ARE bass in the lake. So I will continue to search for them. I think I have tossed a line at every type of bass cover and structure I could. I have been trying this lake for a long time for bass and still no joy. But now after this winter I have had a lot of time to search for good spots and think I will be good come spring.
I'll be sure to post on here when I finally get my intended fish.. Or figure out anything else.
