    Fall Peak (now)

    I believe that central Florida is now in the throes of the Fall Peak.
    It appeared to break open last week, when the Big-EZ was king.
    It was more of the same this Saturday (Oct 6) but the action
    came on a Jig-&-Trailer and the Stanley Ribbit (solid toad).
    The bass Lois is holding was 6 pounds to the ounce, and the
    bass I'm holding was not weighed (Let me explain).

    I was just about to pickup the Ribbit for another cast,
    when a bass exploded in a shower of whitewater,
    right next to the boat. While I was taping her length,
    I noticed the ole gal had a sunken stomach and was blind
    in one eye. Living in a world with 50% opportunity,
    no wonder she seized the toad like her life depended on it.
    My heart went out to her, so after a quick picture
    I promptly returned to her to the lake. Although she was
    23-1/8" long, I'm not sure that she'd even go 5 pounds.

    No I didn't B-B.
    Maybe due to the unusual rainfall, water current is selling at a discount.
    There was more surface activity last month than I'm seeing this month.
    This past weekend, lipless plugs drew a blank but the bass are nonetheless active in 3 to 5 ft.

    We put-in at Hatchineha, but the bulk of activity did come from the Big-K
