23 Nov 2020...C-54... Kind of day that I like, there were only 2 other boats all day. One in the morning, didn’t stray far from the landing. Figured that they got on the resident school of Speck. I don’t work this school as most of the fish are under 12 inches and I’m looking for 14 to 16 inches. Afternoon boat was one of the high stepping Bass rigs. WOT to the West end. Little while later back on the trailer. Lot of tire spinning and smoking getting the boat out. Ramp is sand and drops off real fast. Before they paved most of the ramp, watched a 4x4 get buried to the frame. For the fishing part, trolled between my spots. Three rods, 30# test on one looking for a big Cat. Second and third rods 4 # test, Safety Pin Spinner and a Rapala Ultralight Minnow. Managed 12 Speck, most in the 12 inch range. At each spot, pitched a Lindy Crappie Tube on 6 # test on a bait caster. Variety was the order for the day on the Crappie Tube. Bass, Bream, Shellcrackers and Mayan Cichlids plus a herd of little thumpers, suspect Red Breast and Stumpknockers. 20 Bass for the day, biggest 15 inches. One bright spot, saw a Turtle out sunning. After the net ban, commercial fishermen came in with trotlines and wiped out the Turtle and Cat populations. All players released for another day.
Many things to do.
