Drum'n Kind of Day


We'll today was pretty slow, pretty much expected that with the water still being pretty cold and the lack of generation. Caught some small channel cats, a small striper and sandbass. Some how managed to catch a large gizard shad in the mouth with a micro clouser. And caught a handful of small drum, which are normally pretty hard fighters but with the cold water they were fairly lethargic. I've really been slacking off with pictures, of course it helps to catch some fish worth taking a picture of. This Drum was the best fish of he day. Good news is in 3-4 weeks it should be game on.

Senko Slay'n

The Senko fly is still catching a lot of fish. Its always fun catching fish in clear water as not only do you feel them fighting but also able to see them as well. Generally speaking in clear water you will want to get your flies deeper. For two reasons; 1. Especially on bright days the bass stay a little deeper to be out of the direct sun light. 2. Bass know they are vulnerable to predators in clear water and are more at ease when they are deeper in the water column. As you look into the water, fish areas that have darker bottoms. The darker bottom typically means grass/hydrilla or other forms of vegetation and will hold fish.
