February 22, 2012...Lake Okhissa, MS
« on: 02/22/12 16:36 UTC »
As we all know, the weather's changing.  Frequent (and usually short) snaps of cool and warm, spells of heavy wind and rain, and fluctuations of Barometric Pressure, varying cloud-cover, etc.  Approaching weather systems tend to cause drops in pressure, and the pressure continues to fall as the system gets closer...low pressure expands/relaxes a fishes stomach and they get hungry...rising/high pressure shrinks their stomach.  There's a system approaching, as we speak.

Hit Okhissa today...overcast skies, high wind, still cool water.  1st ammo was soft plastics, mostly turned up zero, a few bumps.  Changed to the CCM Zipper Worm in a "natural" tan-ish/yellow-ish color with Shredded Shrimp mixed in the plastic, 1 good stick-and-miss.  Got to thinkin', "how 'bout lets speed it up"...tied on a Lucky Craft S.K.T. D.R. Crankbait in Magic Craw color...slow-rolling the Crank', letting it dig the bottom, 1 strike...HEAVY fish, I couldn't do anything with it, it went where it wanted to.  Maybe 5 seconds in, hooks pull out.  Thank You, Lord Jesus, that really felt good!

Maybe 5 casts later, 2nd strike, nice Bass hangs on the thumb.  Okhissa has a slot limit, any bass between 18"-22" are released...19.25" of pretty Largemouth swims again.  Switched to the S.K.T. M.R. in Magic Craw, 1 strike, feels like a keeper, but again, the hooks pull free...nice boil on the water is all that's left.

Switched to a semi-custom 1/4 oz. Spinnerbait in "Bluegill" and a Hildebrandt 3.5 Gold Willow (small blade for 1/4 oz.)...keeper Bass about 17" and quite healthy will be dinner for the Wife and I, tonight.

I'm thinking...sauteed 'n crisp, loose hash browns with parmesan cheese, with a white Whipping Cream Sauce (basicly Alfredo) and green onions, served over/on top of the lightly seasoned, Pan-Sauteed Bass filets, and a simple salad on the side...and sweet tea...amen.

A light harvest can yield a simple, extremely tasty meal...Praise GOD...Grace and Provision...Love.

You're gonna have to change your name to Zane Grey.
Until next time.

:D  Thank You, Mr. Denny, Sir!  :D  I had to search "Zane Grey", I didn't know who he was...wow.

The Bass 'n 'Browns w/ Salad turned out very well.  If Yawl don't know about it or have just never tried it, we use Smart Balance in the place of margarine, and all butter-applications (other than Peach Cobbler which always gets real butter), and I HIGHLY recommend it!  Margarine is more water than anything (cooks to near-nothing), with partially hydrogenated oil (very bad), and doesn't really taste that good.  Smart Balance is not only not bad, it's beneficial...and it tastes SOO much better than margarine...AND it melts to almost 100% oil, very little water.
