Title: ...out like a lamb!!
Post by: DRY on March 28, 2018, 05:34:51 PM
The last several days have been a bear with NE winds, east winds and SE winds driving me nuts. Sun and wind and low, clear water...bad combination. But today the month of March laid down like a lamb.

It was my morning to clean the stove/microwave hood. Greasy mess!! Just wanted y'all to know if you want to cut the grease quick...WD-40 does a bang up job and lets the hood shining.

Then it was time to shop...I push the cart, pay the bill and carry the bags into the house... ::) ;)

Around 2 PM I got to the river. Heavy overcast/cloudy...light drizzle off/on...no wind and the old girl was like a piece of glass. Air 45F and water around 42-43F. Fished until 4 PM...and they were chowing down!!

Baby Predator Craw...Stonecat imitation...smoke/purple Cabin Creek tube all caught smallmouth. They wouldn't touch a suspended jerkbait.

Picked up 14 fish mostly from 1 to 2 1/2 lbs. The skin cancer is till present in about 20% of the bass I am catching.

A little more rain would be nice.!!

Nicely done! But I think you are putting cammo paint on your fish.  ;) To keep the other guys away.
