Went fishing Friday and it was pretty slow. We picked up 5 fish, the biggest being around 4 pounds. We figured out a little late that they were being positioned in a big way by the wind and were super shallow for this time of year. They also wanted the bait to be moving really fast (they were wearing their track shoes). It finally dawned on me that this is what was happening when Chris was burning his worm in to make another cast and the wake of a fish formed behind it. The best I can remember we caught them on the SB, Toad, and C-Tail worm.
Saturday was a little more of the same except the Croaker got in on the action. We finally found the fish we were looking for on the 4.5" Toad. I was swimming it in a swim, then fall retrieve and about 15' from us it got whacked. All we could see was a pretty big flash of white. When I set the hook my line immediately broke. I really don't think it was a Bowfin, but I'm telling myself that's all it was.
Here's a pic of a nice Chunk, caught on a C-Tail worm (Grape Ape):
Anyone else have a chance to wet a line?
