Even a dumb squirrel !!
« on: July 18, 2018, 02:37:46 PM »
...Finds an acorn now and then. ;)  ;D

The front that recently came through lowered the temperature and the humidity enough for me to take my second summer foray
on the desolate upper main stem. Air temps around 78F and water temps around 80F. Sunny with some wind and less humifity made things pleasant.

Fished with a suspended jerk bait, a trick worm and a tube. Over 4 hours I found 4 smallmouth. Two were dinks.



One was fairly decent at around 15 inches.



And the "acorn" I found was this rather thin 19 incher. Didn't weigh her but I don't think she was over 4 llbs.

Snuck out last evening for 45 minutes. 1 12" on a crayfish crankbait. About the same ratio in time.

This dumb squirrel took his secret weapon, the "Fish Whisperer" along and had the best summer day yet! Lots of dinks, 4 over 17" and had to break out the net for one spawned out 19 incher. All on tubes.

I don't think the PFBC allows "Voodoo" dolls on the river.  ;)  :)

It looks like the fish whisperer is now running on empty.  Nice bass.  Maybe the drought is ending.
The older I get, the better I used to be.

I'm beginning to think the "Fish Whisperer" is more trouble than he's worth, besides eating my lunch I now find out he needs a fishing license. At least that's what he told me when he wouldn't net a big walleye that I lost at the boat this morn. Caught another small walleye and lots of SM but none over 13".
