Had to go out on opening day even though it was pissing rain and I went to a lake that's open all year anyways. But I like to avoid the crowds so I hit one of my favorite local lakes. Went straight to the other side by the shallow cove. Hit that whole area with spinnerbaits, Senkos, soft swimbaits and jig n pigs but to no avail. I moved my way along the far wall in and out of pads. I finally threw on the old Spro frog since I was getting no luck. First cast, popping her along pretty quickly through a big bed of pads and this nice 6lber blew it up right near the boat. Amazing how you can cast at a spot 10x with 10 different lures and then still pull a fish out on the first cast with the "magic ticket" lure. Anyways I fished for a while longer but it was a pretty miserable morning and my boat was starting to collect a worrisome amount of rain water so I called it a day and went home to warm up.
Until the next time
