Lake Hernando 7/22

My brother and I went and fished Lake Hernando Saturday afternoon/evening. We had to dodge a few rain clouds when we first got out but the weather made for a nice overcast late afternoon and evening. The bite was slow but steady. We were throwing frogs, different worms, swimbaits. I was able to stick a nice one which measured over 23 inches and over 7lbs on my scale. The fish was a little skinny but healthy and actually one of the bigger fish I've caught at Hernando. Other than that our next biggest fish was around 3 and half. Our best 5 probably weighed somewhere around 16 pounds. All in all it was a good afternoon!

    That's a nice one ! We had two over 7 a week ago out of Henderson in our club tournament. Seems like the big fish are wanting to feed up.

    I'm good with that. :cool:

    Hey Louie how much weight did it take to win the tourney at Henderson? Is the water pretty low there?

    Believe it was 14.6 . Water is low but not too bad. Prior tournaments weighed in 17 and someone said there was a 20lb bag also in a different event ?
