I'm not going to count the 10 incher I boated or the 12 incher I lost.
This lake is about one good southerly wind from no longer having a boat launch! The floating land masses are on the move big time. One huge mat now covers the majority of the lake along the road side area and another is blocking about 90% of the launch.
Water temps were a cooler than hoped 52-53 degrees and the water color is still a bit off. I pitched a few different baits and threw swim jugs, spinnerbaits and chatterbaits. I worked the floating mats with edges from 1 to 8 feet deep and the outside edges of the pads. The two dinks came from pitching a shallow edged mat with a black and blue Rage Craw.
Inexperiencedfisherman was launching as I was leaving so I imagine he went out and tore them up :)
Nice bumping into you!
