Season change
« on: October 12, 2021, 07:16:00 AM »
Season is sure changing, not getting light till about 6:45. Which makes it easier to get an early start.
Going to get out today and tomorrow fishing.

Water is starting to get around 2' at our gauge, which isn't bad,but it keeps me from running some skinnier water.
The only fisherman you should try to be better than.
Is the fisherman you was yesterday.

Caught a few nice ones yesterday. Looks like rain coming up for a few days.

3.35 lb I didn't measure but I would guess around 20. My measure board only goes to 18". I keep this up I will have to get a longer measuring board  ;D
They are hungry...

Phil
Thanks!
The river was 62 degrees Wednesday. But I imagine with this cold front coming, water temp will start dropping some.

I was out below HBG on Thursday.  The water temp was 67.  That should change next week.

I have done well in October fishing the deeper pools.  Many 1lb bass but enough big ones to get the blood pumping.  With the temps we have had it is hard to think of this as the fall bite but they are eating and are fat.

I hope I can get through duck hunting season without getting shot.  It is scary to be in the boat fishing and not be able to see more than 20 yards because of fog and then to start hearing shotgun blasts not far away (like 200 yards.)  I know nothing about hunting but it is hard to believe there isn't a reg about shooting when you can't see far due to the fog.

We met a guy last year who fishes and duck hunts the same time. When he sees a duck picks up the shotgun. I guess you could call that being prepared.  ;D
