Have to tell you Tuesday night with the winds 30 40 MPH gusts did not take me long to figure out it would be a short night. We spent part of the early evening pulling cranks on the NW Side of the lake, the wind was whipping in there not to mention the rollers good thing it was dark, could not see them. Figured since we did so well Monday night the 17th, with the eyes really liking a speed of 1.9 to 2.2mph and a number 7 Shallow Shad rap in 7.5 feet of water we ended up with a limit of nice eaters and a bunch of slot fish I would keep up my habits. Thanks for netting Chris. With boat control, being a slight issue it was after the first hour and BAM my personal best 30.5 after another pass we ended up keeping one more fish before calling it a night at 9:00 P.M. There is still plenty of time to get out there and catch your trophy. I will be out there again on Friday night. In addition, I cannot wait until November in search of a 31er.
I am so bummed out I was just to tired to drive back up to the Pond after pulling multiple Docks/lifts. I guess the Big northerns are on a feeding frenzy also many 30 to 40 inch Fish are being caught during the day on Suckers. I will not miss the November phase I don't care how cold it is.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
