Sunny, no cloud cover. Temperature around 65-70. Light wind.
Decided to put the swamp boat in at Key Dam for a little afternoon fishing. Started out fishing a jig, but didn’t have any luck. Switched over to a zoom pumpkin seed with chartreuse tail and was able to catch these two small large mouth bass.
Well for Mother’s Day, I took Denise fishing! She laid out on the back of the boat and said she found it very relaxing! Temperatures were in the mid 70’s and a completely clear sky. Very little to no wind. Water was stained.
I began fishing a PJ’s jig with Joe’s trailer, but didn’t get any hits on it. Also tried to throw a Rapala deep runner with no luck. I then decided to try a creek right beside the road that we had crossed earlier. It’s right beside the bridge.
I fish down the road side of the creek and got no bites. While turning around in the creek, I noticed lots of bluegill around. Where there is bluegill, there is bass! By this time, I was fishing with a zoom u-tale plastic worm. Color was pumpkinseed with a chartreuse tail. I was able to catch this little guy right up against the bank.
I didn’t get anymore bites at that spot so I decided to move on. There is an old dock near the end of the creek. After trolling past that, I saw two bass right on the bank in shallow water. It seemed as if the bass were guarding their nest. I threw my lure right on top of them and both bass didn’t pay any attention to it. I kept dragging the lure and when it was about a foot away from the two bass, something big nailed it! I set the hook and fought this fish for a good 3-4 minutes. Biggest bass ever………….so far!
