It seems that after 4 years of fishing bass in the Southeast, US my luck has finally changed! Brian and I once again set out to our favorite location in NC (which will remain our closely guarded secret). Conditions were warm, at about 80-85 degrees Fahrenheit. It was partly cloudy, and we were actually poured on by an isolated rain cloud for 5 minutes. Our boat is nothing fancy. Although we are very thankful to have a nice troller motor.
The day turned into a duel as Brian and I were able to rack up 10 bass. It seemed as if every cast was getting hit quickly. The final tally was Brian: 6 large mouth Me: 4 large mouth, 1 sunny. I’ll take it! I caught the sunny as the first fish of the day with a Pop-R lure fished off the top of the water with a quick wrist action. Granted, it was a small guy, but the picture of him has really popping color. All of my large mouths were set with a senko worm lure rigged texas style. Most of the large mouth were hitting 5-10 yards off the beds.
