Sammamish Lake (King County) Fishing Report
About another 30 mins later, I happen to see a school of baitfish swimming around me. So I made a few casts into it. On the 2nd one, felt a nice bump and fish on! Digs down pretty good. Drag is a bit loose. Took a while for it to surface and see it's a decent SMB. Didnt weigh it, but estimating it about 2 and a quarter. Caught 3 more 1# along this stretch. One of the bass spit out a green leech looking bait about 3-4" long.
Moved across the lake and skipped a wacky under a dock. Set the hook and fish flys out of the water at me. Feisty little rock bass. Switch back to dropshot. Land me another 2# SMB and a smaller SMB. The 2# was spitting out all sorts of crap. Ran a deep crank, tube and swimbait through the area but only the dropshot is producing it seems.
At about 10:45AM, the breeze picked up. Hit a deep point. On first cast, something decent popped off after a couple of secs of fighting. Continued working the area and landed what looked like the biggest bass so far today, so i weighed it. 2.42# SMB. Landed another 1# and an even smaller SMB on the DS there.
Hit up fart hole and got 1 nibble but no hookup. Stopped off at 2 deep dropoffs with only 2 bites between the 2 of them, no hookups.
So finish the day with 3 fish in the 2# range, handful of 1# and smaller SMB. All fish caught on dropshot except for the rockbass on wacky. Breeze stuck around one it started up. Harder to fish, but sure felt nice.

Sounds like an active day out there. I must have missed an earlier report where you explain ‘fart hole’. But I’ll leave it to my imagination.
