Well here we are back at the ol’ secret spot again! If you’ve been following the blog you know we first visited this spot on 8-7 and we caught some SERIOUS fish (for a small lake).
While the fishing was a little bit slower this time we did end up pulling out some OK fish and as always had a great time just being Functioning Fishaholics!
We arrived with the canoe early and while the camera can’t hold a candle to the real thing, the view of the sun rising over the steaming lake was something awesome from another world.
The first catch of the day! Bluegill??!!!??? Last time it was a Pickerel… This Bluegill was caught on a topwater lure.
The next fish was a Largemouth Bass which I believe was also caught on a topwater lure.
J caught 2 more Bluegill before I had my first catch of the day. This Bluegill was all about nightcrawlers as I just couldn’t get my act together with lures that day!
Another Largemouth taken by a topwater lure
Another wonderful Bluegill for me!
Lunker alert! This nice Largemouth was caught by J using a black and silver fleck Sluggo. We didn’t get a chance to measure or weigh this one but I would say it was at least 18″ and 2-3lbs.
We also caught a very large Crappie that got back in the water before I could take a picture as well as a few more Bluegill.
I got mostly Skunked for the day but stay tuned! The next days fishing trip landed myself and others some NICE fish!
