    Went fishing at Clendening yesterday afternoon. Put in at Tipp ramp. Fished for bluegills. Caught around 30 or so. and one bass. I used my ultralight and a 1/32 oz jig with pieces of worm.... I had fun!

    Funny thing about the trip was that all the places I though would have gills, I would catch only one or none then I would move down shore a little and would find them where I would usually pass up. I guess that is how it goes.


    Then I get back to the ramp and some idiot with his wife and kids is there with 2 poles on each side of the ramp. the kids swimming in front of the ramp and his van opened up with some crappy music playing like he owned the place. I managed to get my boat to shore without getting into his lines. Then I backed part way down the ramp andhad to get out to ask him to move the poles that were on my side so I could get the boat on trailer. (I pull the boat on by the rope!) Could not believe he just sat there like I was in the wrong place. Maybe it was the alchohol! :rolleyes:
     
  2. probably a local, rockbass!what with kids and a wife and van payments and buying all that crappy music he cant afford to buy a boat or go on vacation!!probably was using weiners as bait???what with alchohol, bliss is ignorance? might not of even known you were loading a boat?when i run into a bunch like that i hightail it the other way!!!

    that is a common problem at that ramp. was out with mrtwister_jbo tuesday and we had to wait for a guy who had about a 300 gal water tank on the back of his pickup finnish loading. not a big problem but annoying anyway. i use that ramp alot. look for a sea nymph with a OGF sticker on it. and say hi.

    I have also seen a truck with a big tank on it filling it with water. I was just launching when they pulled up though. That is where I usually go sauguy. I will look for your boat! I was just saying the other day I needed to get a sticker for my boat!

    I have a 12 foot Starcraft V bottom. It has a (old)10 horse evinrude motor and 2 trolling motors. It is black. It was spray painted at one time, so you can not tell it is a starcraft unless you are up close to see where the letters were!. I drive a darker red Ford Ranger it is a 2000 and it sits a little higher than the standard ranger single cab. If I make it out there this week, it won't be until thursday afternoon.

    we went to atwood today and just fished from shore. 1 10 inch bass thats all. did not put boat in at clendening skies looked bad. might try atwood wed. some place new. heard saugeyes and crappies were biting. never fish there before , so might give it a try. good luck and post what you get.
