Fun day at Bloomsburg.
« on: June 29, 2017, 09:17:01 AM »
Put in at Bloomsburg yesterday with my friend Harry.  Ran up to the 80 bridge.  The gauge was at 2.7 and after bumping four or five rocks I decided that was as far as I was going.  The action started immediately with Harry hooking up on a white spinnerbait.  Shortly after that I landed a 16 1/2 inch eye on a green curly tail grub.  Harry caught a few more, then after a short lull he switched to a shallow diving crank bait and started putting fish in the boat.  Meanwhile I lost my grub to the rocks and switched to a gulp minnow on a drop shot.  Harry just kept cranking them in.  I finally saw the light and even though I prefer dragging the bottom, I too put on a crankbait and started catching smallies.  We fished our way about 2/3 of the way back toward the launch and after a long dry spell I decided we had enough fun for one day.

Harry boated over thirty bass and I came in with about eighteen.  I have two explanations for the score.  First, the guy in the back has more time to fish than the driver and second, he's a better fisherman.  The two pictured below were about at the top of what we were catching with many in the 8 to 12 inch range.  Even small smallies are fun.

The trip home was no fun with the trailer losing a wheel bearing.



The older I get, the better I used to be.
