Lake Semonole Oct. 1st thru 4th. 2015
Now if the fishing would have been as easy ..
Pre-fished half of Thursday and all of Friday . Got 3 to 4 bites both days with a 4lb as the largest. The weather was blowing with a heavy misty drizzle that was just enough to need a rain suit. Wind out of the North. :banghead
I got lucky on tournament day one with 2 fish on a top water bait in Spring creek and a 4-11 on a spinnerbait off a bluff in the Flint. I missed the daily big fish pot but won the day and was leading the tournament by a pound+ . Only 2 bags had 3 fish and the other tournament was experiencing the same fishing.
Day two I went to were I started on day one and with the constant wind ended up throwing a bow line over timber sticking up in 23' of water to hold the boat. I would fish the area slow and move to the next stick up and repeat . SLOW fishing . I hate fishing that way.
I missed a good fish and finally put a 3-1 in the boat but the bite stopped. Went to try the spinnerbait area but the wind change didn't work for that spot. Ended up going to the only rip rap bank in the area that had the right wind direction and caught my last fish on the first cast. A 2 pounder on the stinger hook, just like the one the day before was hooked. Thank goodness I put the stinger on :cool:
Only weighed in two fish but won the big bass pot , total weight pot and the overall two day tournament $$ .
Tough conditions but a win is a win. :USA
