My fishing seems to get worse and worse. Fished a club tournament at West Point Lake today, caught one largemouth and four spotted bass total weight 4.26 pounds. As bad as that was I came in 5th out of 19 fishermen.
I tried shallow pockets first – until noon – thinking they would be there. Water was 58 degrees. Finally caught one keeper largemouth in a ditch back in the pocket in about six feet of water at 10:30 AM. Partner finally caught a keeper at 1:00, with just two hours left to fish. Then on the last bank we had time to fish I got three spots and he got one on Carolina rigs in rocks about six feet deep.
First place was five at just under 11 pounds, including a skinny six pounder. Second was just over 10 pounds for five and they were caught shallow after lunch – after I moved out to the points. Very frustrating!
But it was a beautiful, sunny, warm day.
Til next time, gone fishing.
